TAMPA — The Hillsborough County Commission voted unanimously Wednesday to name an award and a senior center after former Elections Supervisor Phyllis Busansky, who died last month.
The award, proposed by County Commissioner Rose Ferlita, will recognize individuals' commitment to good government and ethics. It will be awarded every June.
The Westshore Senior Center will also be named for Busansky.
Busansky's husband, Sheldon, expressed his appreciation for the recognition.
"Phyllis loved Hillsborough County and lived her live with passion and a commitment to establishing good government. It is our hope that Phyllis' legacy … will live on.
Busansky's replacement, Earl Lennard, was sworn in Wednesday morning.
