“It is my honor to serve another term as Chair of the Federal Policy Committee,” Commissioner Starkey said. “The Florida Association of Counties does an excellent job of uniting local voices across the state to develop a federal advocacy program to share with national leaders and lawmakers.”
The Committee Chair assists FAC in leading the development process of policies that will guide the formation of FAC’s agenda for the 2022 legislative session. The FAC addresses similar policy issues encountered at the state level but initiated at the federal level.
