   19         WHEREAS, under David Armijo’s leadership, HART has improved
   20  efficiency and effectiveness, enhanced customer service, and
   21  instituted the highest standards of financial management, and
   22         WHEREAS, the Florida Public Transportation Association on
   23  November 10, 2009, recognized HART as the state’s best, naming
   24  it the Outstanding Transit System, NOW, THEREFORE,
   26  Be It Resolved by the Senate of the State of Florida:
   28         That the management team and staff of Hillsborough Area
   29  Regional Transit are commended for their outstanding
   30  achievements that have earned the designation as “Outstanding

   32  Association.
   33         BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution, with
   34  the Seal of the Senate affixed, be presented to Hillsborough
   35  Area Regional Transit as a tangible token of the sentiments of
   36  the Florida Senate.
