Boca Deputy Mayor Recognized As Home Rule Hero


Staff report

Boca Raton Deputy Mayor Scott Singer recently received a 2018 Home Rule Hero Award from the Florida League of Cities.

Singer earned this award for his efforts to advance the League’s legislative agenda and help protect the Home Rule powers of Florida’s cities during the 2018 legislative session.

The Home Rule Hero Award recipients are local government officials – both elected and non-elected – 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.

“These dedicated municipal officials are some of the Florida League of Cities’ biggest advocates for municipal issues,” said Florida League of Cities President, Gil Ziffer. “Their efforts during the 2018 legislative session were extraordinary. The League and its legislative team are proud to recognize and thank them for their service.”

Home Rule is the ability for a city to address local problems through and by local decision makers with minimal state interference.

“I’m honored to be able to serve the residents of Boca Raton and will continue to make sure their voices are heard on local matters that impact our community,” Singer said.
