Miami Lakes Vice Mayor Manny Cid was recently appointed chairman of the 2014-2015 Growth Management and Economic Affairs Legislative Policy Committee for the Florida League of Cities (FLC).
“I thank FLC president and City of Miramar Mayor Lori Mosely for appointing me as chair of the statewide policy committee,” Cid said. “Representing our residents on the FLC growth management and economic development committee is a true honor and privilege.”
Legislative Policy Committee chairs, vice-chairs and members are appointed annually by the League president. Any city official is eligible to serve on a Policy Committee, and appointments are typically basic upon a city official’s support and advocacy of the League’s adopted Legislative Action Agenda, participation at meetings, Legislative Action Day, and other legislative-related activities, according to the FLC.
“Municipal officials are the driving force behind the League’s legislative success. In addition to setting the legislative priorities, the League’s policy committee members help to provide League staffing of the real world implications of proposed legislation,” said FLC Legislative Director Scott Dudley.
Mayor Wayne Slaton currently serves on FLC’s Transportation and Intergovernmental Relations Committee, and Town Manager Alex Rey serves on the Finance, Taxation and Personnel Committee.
