1 Message from Your Board We are pleased to present you our 2017 Doing Things Accomplishments Report. The following pages highlight many of the things done in 2017 to fulfill Our Vision: To Be the Standard for Public Service in America. In 2017, we achieved many milestones, including the passage of the Penny for Pinellas renewal referendum with an impressive 83% voter approval. Along the way, we continued to Deliver First Class Services by expanding our community outreach efforts and launching a new storm readiness mobile app. To Ensure Public Health, Safety and Welfare, we coordinated preparation for, response to and recovery from Hurricane Irma. Practicing Environmental Stewardship, we implemented stormwater and wastewater solutions through our countywide Wastewater/Stormwater Task Force. To Foster Economic Growth and Vitality, we hosted the 2017 Economic Symposium and discussed strategies to position our community and region for continued economic success. Supporting a Quality Workforce, we engaged employees through development opportunities and launched a mentoring program to introduce youth to careers in public service. By building meaningful partnerships, investing in our employees and broadening our public engagement, we were able to continue to demonstrate the great value of local government to our Citizens. As your Board of County Commissioners, we thank you for your continual trust and support. We look forward to achieving new successes as we maintain a unified vision and progressive leadership into the future. At-Large Districts Janet C.
