    Tashika Griffith, the incoming chair for the Grow Smarter steering committee, promises to be a visible presence in the community, calling on as many people as she can to contribute their ideas about equitable economic growth in St. Petersburg.

    Griffith, provost for St. Petersburg College Downtown and Midtown campuses, was introduced Friday morning at the Grow Smarter summit, as several hundred people gathered to talk about the city’s economic development strategy, including inclusive growth by race and place.
