Coral Springs Vice Mayor Joy Carter was appointed to serve on the Florida League of Cities 2020-2021 Land Use and Economic, legislative policy committee.
Founded in 1922, Florida League of Cities promotes local self-government and serve the needs of Florida’s cities, which are formed and governed by their citizens.
“It’s an honor and privilege to serve as a legislative policy committee member,” said Vice Mayor Carter. “As a dedicated public servant, I look forward to discussing with the committee the many issues facing our cities and deciding on a policy direction for the Florida League of Cities legislative efforts.”
As a legislative policy committee member, Vice Mayor Carter will help to develop the FLC Legislative Action Agenda, which details priority issues that are most likely to affect daily municipal governance and local decision-making during the upcoming legislative session, as well as help FLC staff understand the real-world implications of proposed legislation. They are also asked to serve as advocates throughout the legislative process.
Legislative policy committee chairs, vice-chairs, and members are appointed annually by the league’s president. Florida League of Cities President Tony Ortiz, commissioner for the City of Orlando, made the appointments for this term.
