PRESIDENT & CEO, FLORIDA TAXWATCH, TALLAHASSEE

Calabro has led the non-profit taxpayer research institute and government watchdog for 38 years. The organization is known for its annual Turkey Watch reports, TaxWatch Productivity Awards and more recently its TaxWatch Principal Leadership Awards. It employs about 20 people. Calabro says he takes particular pride “seeing the impact Florida TaxWatch has on so many fronts of the Sunshine State’s tax, fiscal, budget and economic policies and the quality of life and livelihoods of Floridians.”
