Coral Springs, FL – Vice Mayor Joshua Simmons was recently appointed to serve on the Florida League of Cities (FLC) 2021-2022 Advocacy Committee. FLC is the united voice for Florida’s municipal governments.

As an Advocacy Committee member, Vice Mayor Simmons will help develop ideas and activities that will strengthen the FLC influence with state officials, help determine the impacts of legislative proposals on municipal operations and functions and keep FLC staff informed on communications and activities with legislators.

Regarding his appointment, Vice Mayor Simmons said, “I recognize that one of the best ways to advocate for the 133,000 residents of Coral Springs is to be actively engaged and informed about policies and decisions being made on the state and federal level. From protecting Home Rule to building key relationships throughout the state, our city’s work with FLC is a benefit to our residents now and in the future.”

The Advocacy Committee is responsible for making direct contact with state elected officials to advocate the FLC Legislative Action Agenda and other key issues and provide strategic direction on the Leagues' lobbying initiatives. Advocacy committee members are appointed annually by the League’s president. Florida League of Cities President Phillip Walker, Commissioner for the City of Lakeland, made the appointments for this term.
