The Florida League of Cities recently recognized Mayor Anne Gerwig with a 2019 Home Rule Hero Award. Mayor Gerwig earned this prestigious award for her advocacy efforts to protect the Home Rule powers of Florida’s municipalities and advance the League’s legislative agenda during the 2019 legislative session.
“Local self-government is the keystone of American Democracy. I am committed to advocating Home Rule as a way to assert, in law, our community’s mission and vision for the future, and protect our right to maintain our quality of life”, said Mayor Anne Gerwig.
Home Rule is the ability for a city to address local problems with local solutions with minimal state interference. 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 to an issue.
