2023 Home Rule Hero - Scott Singer, Yvette Drucker, George Brown

The Florida League of Cities (FLC), the united voice for Florida’s municipal governments, recently recognized Mayor Scott Singer, Council Member Yvette Drucker and Deputy City Manager George Brown with a 2023 Home Rule Hero Award for their hard work and advocacy efforts during the 2023 Legislative Session. They all worked tirelessly throughout 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 League and its legislative team appreciate the individual advocacy efforts undertaken by municipal officials throughout the state,” said FLC Chief of Legislative Affairs Casey Cook. “Home Rule Heroes are some of our biggest advocates for protecting local decision-making. They are League members who stand out for their high level of participation, knowledge, and effectiveness. This year’s Home Rule Heroes continuously advocated for their communities throughout the 2023 Legislative Session.”

Home Rule is the ability for a city to address local problems with local solutions with minimal state interference. Home Rule Hero Award recipients are 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.
