The Florida League of Cities has honored Boca Raton Mayor Scott Singer as a 2021 Home Rule Hero for his work and advocacy efforts during the 2021 legislative session.
9025776484?profile=RESIZE_180x180“Singer worked tirelessly throughout the 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 said in a May 26 release.
During the recently completed legislative session, lawmakers continued efforts they have made in previous years to strip cities and counties of governing powers enshrined in the state constitution and known as “home rule.”
“I am honored to work with local elected leaders across the state to defend the principle that cities should be able to decide local matters without undue interference from Washington or Tallahassee,” Singer said.
Singer, who was elected mayor in 2018 and re-elected in 2020, was also named a Home Rule Hero in 2018 and 2020.
