At the 2018 Annual Florida Association of Counties Conference and Educational Exposition in Orlando, Florida, from June 26-29, the Florida Counties Foundation (FCF) recognized Gadsden County Commissioner Gene Morgan as a Presidential Advocate for his work during the 2018 Legislative Session.
“Whether it’s speaking against unfunded state mandates, or advocating for home-rule legislation, I am committed to working hard at the legislative level for the citizens of Gadsden County,” said District Three County Commissioner Gene Morgan. “I am honored to receive this recognition, and I am dedicated to ensuring that our voices are heard amidst the range of significant issues before the Florida Legislature.”
The FAC Presidential Advocate recognition is given to county commissioners who have shown exceptional leadership in advocating with FAC during the 2018 session to advance the counties’ legislative agenda.
“Every day your local Commissioner is fighting to preserve the unique aspects and magnificent qualities of your community,” said FAC President and Charlotte County Commissioner, Christopher Constance. “It is because of their dedication, resourcefulness, and perseverance that we’ve have been able to advance the counties’ legislative agenda and build a stronger Florida for all Floridians.”
For more than 85 years, the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) has represented the diverse interests of Florida’s counties, emphasizing the importance of protecting home rule – the concept that government closest to the people governs best.
The Florida Association of Counties helps counties effectively serve and represent Floridians by strengthening and preserving county home rule through advocacy, education and collaboration.
