TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

Hillsborough County Board of Commissioners presented their Good Government award to former Tampa mayor Pam Iorio during a ceremony Wednesday morning at the County Center in Tampa.

Iorio received the county's 2013 Ellsworth G. Simmons Good Government Award for revitalizing downtown, neighborhood improvements, crime reduction and other achievements during her tenure as the mayor of the nation's 54th largest city.

County commissioners also mentioned Iorio's positive influence on the Children's Board of Hillsborough County while she acted as its interim CEO in 2012.

Hillsborough County established the award in 1996 to honor individuals or groups who improve the county's government.  Its past recipients include University of South Florida President Dr. Judy Genshaft, the late Sam M. Gibbons, who served as a member of the U.S. Congress for 34 years, and former State Legislator H. Lee Moffitt.
