The Carrollwood Area Business Association (CABA) awarded the honorary title of “Mayor of Carrollwood” to former four-time Tampa Mayor Dick Greco. He received the title at the organization’s 30th Anniversary Gala at the Carrollwood Country Club in Tampa on May 13.
To kick off the meeting, Hillsborough County Commissioner Ken Hagan presented the CABA board of directors with a commendation for their work on behalf of the Carrollwood community and local businesses.
About 20 VIPs who could not attend received “video shout outs” for their service including Governor Rick Scott, former Tampa Mayor Bob Martinez and Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee.
CABA began 30 years ago with a small group of concerned business owners who worried that the widening of North Dale Mabry Highway would harm area businesses during construction. Now, more than 500 business professionals are CABA members.
