SAFETY HARBOR — City Manager Matt Spoor has selected Damon Lister to serve as the volunteer economic development liaison for the city. The new position was part of the City Commission's directive to Spoor as city officials consider ways to strengthen the city's downtown core economically. Lister, who has a master's degree in integrated marketing and management communication from Florida State University, is an executive vice president of Park Property Group of Clearwater. He was a City Commission candidate this year but lost to Scott Long.
According to Spoor, Lister has "already started to make a positive difference."
"Damon impressed me with his enthusiasm and passion for the responsible economic development of Safety Harbor," Spoor said.
