"We've got to get women to sit at the table." Sheryl Sandberg. The newly-formed Women's Exchange does just that. Hear how they're making progress from one of the founders, Hillsborough County Commission Chair Sandy Murman during our monthly Power Lunch at Jackson's Bistro on Harbour Island. About Our Speaker: Sandra Murman was elected as a County Commissioner in 2010, representing District 1. She was re-elected without opposition in June 2012. In 2014 Commissioner Murman was elected by her fellow commissioners to serve as Chairman of the BOCC. She served as Vice Chairman in 2011, 2012 and again in 2013. Prior to joining the County Commission, Murman completed eight years as a member of the Florida House of Representatives from 1996-2004. Representative Murman was the first Republican Woman to hold the position of Speaker Pro-Tempore in the Florida House of Representatives.During her tenure in the House of Representatives, Murman worked on issues such as nursing shortages, long term care reform for elderly services, nursing home litigation reform, and critical reform of child protective services and foster care.

As a longtime resident of Hillsborough County, Commissioner Murman has spent many hours volunteering her time as an active community advocate as well as a public policy leader. She has been directly involved in more than 20 organizations that support our community and enhance the lives of children and families. Her lifetime dream was to build a children’s museum in our community and spearheaded the Capital Campaign to raise $16 million to build the new Glazer Children’s Museum in downtown Tampa. She also served as Chair of the Board of Directors for the Museum.
