Tampa Latin Chamber Luncheon | Community Spirit
Hillsborough County, Florida -- Tony Morejon, Hillsborough County Hispanic Affairs Liaison, will be the featured speaker for the Tampa Latin Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Tuesday, April 24 at 6 p.m. at The DoubleTree by Hilton.
Morejon will discuss current Hillsborough County issues, such as local redistricting, Hispanic representation in county government and this year's elections.
According to the Hillsborough County website, Morejon began working in the county in 1983 as a social worker before he moved his way up to his current position in 1994. He participates on several advisory committees to help marshall county resources where they are needed most in the Hispanic community. He also advocates on behalf of Hispanic interests so county policy and business decisions account for the needs of the Spanish-speaking community in Hillsborough County.
Morejon is of Cuban descent, born in New York, and raised in Tampa. He attended local public schools and received his bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. His career has been complemented with honors such as being named Tampa Hispanic Heritage's Hispanic Man of the Year for Public Services in 2001 and 2004.
In 1995, he was named Hillsborough County Hispanic Man of the Year. In 1997, he was named Univision's Exito de lo Nuestro, a prestigious award given by one of the area's major Spanish television stations.
He has contributed his service to the Latino Coalition, Hispanic Business Initiative Fund, League of Latin American Citizens and the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, and currently serves on the board of directors for the Tampa Latin Chamber.
