Al Austin Honored

Al Austin was named Civitan’s Citizen of the Year. It could have been for any number of years. His impact has been as far-reaching as it’s been unremitting.

Austin was a visionary in developing the West Shore office district and a champion in standing tall for MacDill Air Force Base. He’s always been the proverbial busy guy who could get important things done — whether for the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce, the Red Cross, the American Heart Association, the University of Tampa or the Tampa Bay Partnership.

He’s long been a major GOP player statewide and nationally. He has been at his partisan best, however, whenever it came to Tampa.

Al Austin is also the consummate gentleman.

Congratulations.

And thank you.
