“These officials are some of the Florida League of Cities’ biggest advocates for municipal issues, always willing and ready to contact legislators and travel to Tallahassee to be sure a local voice is heard on issues that are important to cities,” said Florida League of Cities Legislative Director Scott Dudley. “It is clear that these public servants have devoted themselves to Florida’s citizens and will remain loyal to their cities and state far into the future.”
The Florida League of Cities is the united voice for Florida’s municipal governments. Founded in 1922, the organization serves the needs of more than 400 Florida cities by promoting local self-government, shaping legislation, sharing the advantages of cooperative action, and exchanging ideas and experiences.
