Castor calls for investigation of 9/11 Sarasota connection


Tampa Congresswoman Kathy Castor Monday called on the House Intelligence Committee to investigate why the FBI did not disclose to Congress information it learned about a Saudi couple living in southwest Florida with ties to the 9/11 hijackers. The Saudis came to the FBI’s attention after neighbors reported they’d suddenly fled their home near Sarasota two weeks before the 2001 terrorist attacks. “One of the great criticisms of the pre-9/11 intelligence operations,” Castor wrote in her letter to the committee’s two senior members, “was the lack of ...

Kathy Castor blasts GOP plan to cut hurricane hunters


For several weeks now, Tampa area Democratic Congresswoman Kathy Castor has been ripping into a proposal by House Republicans that would cut funding by 40 percent for so-called "hurricane hunters' - military plans that fly into hurricanes in order to measure and track them. The issue has grown in resonance after Hurricane Irene churned up significant damage in the Northeast. Concurrently, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was saying even before the storm hit that Congress would need to make commensurate budget cuts to pay for FEMA funding for hurricane cleanup. That statement has been met ...

Ms. Gano was born in Tampa, Florida. During her early childhood, she lived in Georgetown, Guyana for 5 years before returning to Tampa, where she graduated from Middleton Senior High School. She later joined the United States Army, serving in the military from 1968 to 1971 in various places as a Pay Disbursing Specialist.

Chloe Coney
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the accomplishments of a true champion of progress, Chloe J. Coney.  She is retiring this month after 10 years of serving as my district director in Tampa. Her invaluable contributions to the Tampa Bay community are an inspiration to us all. Today, I am grateful to recognize her selfless dedication, honor her valuable service to our community and thank her for her daily efforts to serve our neighbors in Tampa.  Known as a “woman who wears many hats,” Mrs. Coney is a leader who serves with a spirit of love and excellence. When federal courts ordered Hillsborough County to desegregate its school system, even at an early age, Mrs. Coney became a leader. In 1963, she along with a brave few helped to integrate the school district. In turn, Mrs. Coney attended and graduated from Hillsborough High School with honors in 1968. Her determination to lead and serve pushed her achieve a bachelor’s degree in Sociology/Corrections from Florida
Alton White
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the legacy of one of Tampa Bay’s true trailblazer, Alton Maurice White, during Black History Month. He has dedicated himself to improving the lives of others through public service and education. Today, I am grateful to recognize his selfless dedication and honor his valuable service to our community. Mr. White chose early on in his impressive career to dedicate himself to service to his community. Receiving an athletic scholarship attending Florida A&M University, Mr. White was active both on and off the field. As a brother of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. and a student-leader in the early 1960s, Mr. White embarked on civil rights demonstrations against segregation. After receiving a Bachelor in Education, Mr. White became a teacher and coach at Mercer University in Georgia then in the Hillsborough County Public School system. In 1967 he began his career in government service with the Federal Model Cities Program. Through bipartisan netw
U.S. Rep. Castor’s Statement re: Attorney General Sessions’ Apparent Perjury
Lying to a congressional committee while you are under sworn oath is illegal.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions should resign and at the very least must recuse himself from the investigation into illegal collusion between Vladimir Putin, the Russian government and the Trump Campaign.  President Trump’s failure to release his tax returns (unlike any other presidential candidate or President) continues to be a cloud over his Administration.  An open and transparent review of his tax returns could answer questions related to whether or not he or his company have ties to Russia.
