Former Tampa official tapped to lead Dade City Chamber of Commerce

DADE CITY — The retired director of the Tampa Convention Center is the new executive director of the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce. John G. Moors, who worked as the center's administrator from 2000 to 2010, began his new job Monday.

"I am looking forward to contributing to Dade City's business growth, serving the chamber members and giving back to this wonderful community," said Moors, who lives in New Tampa. Moors replaces Nita Beckwith, who was dismissed last month for undisclosed reasons.

Before working with the city of Tampa, Moors was general manager of Bristol Hotels and Resorts in Tampa and held the same position for Bass Hotels and Resorts in Toronto and Commonwealth Hospitality in Ontario. He also has worked as an adjunct professor at Saint Leo University.

He served as volunteer coordinator for the Hillsborough County transportation initiative.

He and his wife, Julie, have three grown daughters. A native of Canada, he became a U.S. citizen in 2005.

The chamber has scheduled a meet-and-greet from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday at the chamber headquarters at 14112 Eighth St.

    INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato, a journeyman driver, became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he held off three-time champion Helio Castroneves in a 230-mph wheel-rubbing duel to the finish.

    Scott Dixon’s car goes over the top of Jay Howard, soaring so high that Helio Castroneves drove under it while it was airborne. Stunningly, there were no serious injuries.
