Mayor Scott Brook joins more than 50 others to the Florida League of Mayors’ Board of Directors, according to the City of Coral Springs.
Brook said the appointment to the nonpartisan organization’s board of directors provides him with a platform to advocate before the Florida Legislature.
“Serving on the board allows me to better connect with other Florida mayors to share new ideas and best practices,” he said.
Brook was elected as a Coral Springs city commissioner from 2002-2006, and mayor from 2006 to 2010. He was elected mayor again, following the sudden passing of Mayor Skip Campbell in October 2018. In November 2020, he was reelected.
During his term as mayor, the City of Coral Springs became the first city in the USA to receive the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.
Staffed by the Florida League of Cities, the Florida League of Mayors provides the mayors of Florida with the ability to explore, in great depth, areas of mutual concern and opportunity. It reflects current public opinion, which shows that mayors are widely viewed as the key political leaders in their community and enjoy a high level of public confidence.
The two-year appointment was made during the Florida League of Cities annual conference held in August in Orlando.
