Each year, the Florida League of Cities recruits volunteers to serve on the League’s Legislative policy committees. These volunteer appointments are a one year commitment and involve developing the League’s priorities for the upcoming legislative session. Policy committee members also help League staff understand the real world implications of proposed legislation and are asked to serve as advocates for home rule throughout the legislative process.

Preserving Home Rule, educating citizens and legislators alike on this valuable right and maintaining a focus on those issues that directly affect self-governance, service delivery and the quality of life of each municipality are essential goals of the Florida League of Cities. Councilman Williams’ will be presiding over a multitude of issues that include general finance & tax issues, home rule revenues, infrastructure funding, pension issues and tax and budget reform.
“It’s an honor to count myself among the esteemed elected officials who will help make sure the financial interests of our municipalities are represented,” said Councilman Williams upon being informed of his new appointment. “I am proud to represent the City of Homestead as one of the 400 cities, towns and villages that are members of the League throughout the Sunshine State. I am looking forward to sharing the advantages of cooperative action and the exchange of ideas and experiences with my colleagues.”
