Congratulations are in order for City Manager Brenda Fettrow and Councilman R. Shaun Ferguson, who recently received the Home Rule Hero Award from the Florida League of Cities for their tireless work during the 2020 legislative session.
The Florida League of Cities describes award recipients as "local government officials, both elected and nonelected, who consistently responded to the League’s request to reach out to members of the legislature and help give a local perspective on an issue. They worked tirelessly throughout the legislative session to promote local voices making local choices, protect the Home Rule powers of Florida’s municipalities and advance the League’s legislative agenda."
“The dedication and effort of these local officials during the 2020 legislative session was inspirational and should serve as a model for municipal officials statewide,” said FLC Legislative Director Scott Dudley. “These are some of our biggest advocates for municipal issues, and they’re shining examples of local advocacy in action. On behalf of the League and its legislative team, we’re proud to recognize each of them, and we thank them for their service.”
