Commissioner Fishman Named Home Rule Hero

TAMARAC, Fla., April 10, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Commissioner Julie Fishman received a 2020 Home Rule Hero Award from the Florida League of Cities (FLC) for her tireless efforts to represent the City of Tamarac and protect the home rule powers of Florida’s cities during the 2020 legislative session. This is the third year in which she received this honor.

Home rule is the ability of a city to address local problems with minimal state interference. Commissioner Fishman and the other award recipients worked 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.”

“I was proud to represent my City during the last legislative session, and I’m always happy to add my voice to those working to protect home rule,” said Commissioner Fishman. “It’s critical that local elected officials retain the ability to make decisions that impact those who elected us into office.”
