CLEARWATER CEO SPEAKS ABOUT TOURISM AND TAX ISSUES FACING TAMPA BAY

  
  
  
  
  

Ken Lucci Joins Clearwater Chamber of Commerce Executive Roundtable

CLEARWATER, Fla. (Oct. 4, 2011) – Ambassador Limousine & Sedan, Inc. (ALS), the largest and most diverse ground transportation provider in West Central Florida, continues to prove their name as a trusted business partner throughout the region. On Tuesday, Ambassador Limousine President and CEO Ken Lucci addressed the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce in an executive roundtable about tourism challenges within the greater Tampa Bay area along with recommendations on how to stimulate local business growth.

Lucci, who recently secured the two largest RNC and DNC transportation contracts, represented private transportation companies and advocated the need for a true regional public transportation system including rail and consolidated bus service. In addition, he encouraged regional branding and marketing of Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tampa as complete destination. 
“To be successful, we must depend on one another,” said Lucci. “Tampa needs Clearwater and St. Pete’s beaches as does Clearwater and St. Pete need Tampa’s facilities. We have it all if we can work together.”

In addition to tourism concerns, Lucci addressed the growing trend in unregulated taxi and car services which operate with subcontractors who should be classified as employees.

“These companies are violating ethical business practices,” asserted Lucci. “Not only are they jeopardizing public safety but their people are being unfairly compensated and the state is losing millions in payroll and unemployment taxes.”

Lucci also spoke about this practice in an interview on WFLA radio last week saying he was concerned that current tax policy will only drive more businesses to operate in this manner.

“Legislatures in this economy need to not focus on successful businesses but rather the illegal entities who exploit the laws as they are written for the sake of making a buck,” noted Lucci.
Lucci has already been asked to share these executive recommendations with tourism officials during a conference call next month.
