TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida League of Cities, the united voice for Florida’s municipal governments, announced that Jacksonville Beach City Councilor Sandy Golding was recently appointed to serve on the Florida League of Cities 2020-2021 Legislative Policy Committee.

 

Legislative policy committee chairs, vice-chairs and members are appointed annually by the League’s president. Florida League of Cities President Tony Ortiz, commissioner for the City of Orlando, made the appointments for this term.

 

As a legislative policy committee member, Sandy will help develop the League’s Legislative Action Agenda, which details priority issues that are most likely to affect daily municipal governance and local decision-making during the upcoming legislative session, as well as help League staff understand the real-world implications of proposed legislation and are asked to serve as advocates throughout the legislative process.

 

On serving on the committee, Councilor Golding says, "Each year, our local government's ability to make the decisions that are best for our community is threatened by pre-emption legislation. ​I am honored to be appointed to the Florida League of Cities Municipal Administration Policy Committee. I look forward to representing the City of Jacksonville Beach as the committee develops the 2021 Legislative Action Agenda to protect our municipalities from attacks on our Home Rule powers."

 

Sandy Golding has been serving on the Jacksonville Beach City Council since 2018. During the 2020 legislative session, Sandy advocated to protect Jacksonville Beach's Home Rule powers to make local decisions on issues that impact the citizens of Jacksonville Beach. As a result of her advocacy efforts, Sandy was chosen to be a Florida League of Cities 2020 Home Rule Hero.
