City of Homestead Councilman Jimmie Williams has been appointed to serve as a member of the Florida League of Cities Florida Action Strike Team, also known as FAST. The Florida League of Cities selected Councilman Williams for this position because of his “leadership within the league and his relationship with congressional delegation members.”
In this position Councilman Williams will be responsible for communicating and working closely with both of Florida’s U.S. Senators and also with their respective members of Congress. The FAST Committee was created in support of the League’s strategic plan objective to strengthen its federal relations. The team will provide more direct involvement between Florida cities and their congressional leaders.
The Florida League of Cities is an organization made up of Florida cities and towns to form a united voice for Florida municipal governments. Its goals are to serve the needs of Florida cities and promote local self-government. The League currently represents more than 400 cities, towns, and villages in the Sunshine State.
