COMMISSIONER MARLON BOLTON DESIGNATED TAMARAC’S VOTING DELEGATE FOR THE 2021 FLORIDA LEAGUE OF CITIES CONFERENCE

Tamarac District 1 Commissioner Marlon D. Bolton was designated as the City of Tamarac’s voting delegate at the Florida League of Cities’ 95th Annual Conference.

The Conference was held in Orlando, Florida, from August 12-14. The conference provides an opportunity for municipal officials to enhance leadership skills, learn from experts, share ideas with peers, discuss strategies for Florida’s future and hear about the latest products and services for city governments.

As Tamarac’s official voting delegate, Bolton voted on the City’s behalf to elect the League’s team leadership, resolutions, and decisions that define the direction of the organization. Additionally, Bolton vote at this year’s Conference includes cybersecurity assistance, infrastructure investments, the National Flood Insurance Program, and more.

“I’m honored to have represented my colleagues and the City of Tamarac as a voting delegate at this year’s Conference,” Bolton said. “This was a great opportunity to learn from and connect with elected officials from all over our state, and to apply new insight and approaches to the great work already being done in Tamarac.”

Bolton is a proponent of home rule. “Home rule is a valuable power that I hoped the League would continue advocating for and they did, said Bolton. It delegates control by the state to municipalities, like Tamarac. Home rule allows cities to self-govern and limits the degree of state interference in local matters, like vacation rentals.”

The Florida League of Cities was created to help ensure local voices make local choices. In doing so, municipalities work together to help shape legislation, share the advantages of cooperative action, and exchange ideas and experiences.
