League of Cities makes appointment
From The City of Apopka
The Florida League of Cities has appointed City of Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer to serve on the 2016-2017 Energy and Environmental Policy Committee.
Energy and Environmental Policy Committee members are appointed annually by the League president. Any city official is eligible to serve on a Policy Committee, and appointments typically are based upon a city official’s support and advocacy of the League’s adopted Legislative Action Agenda, participation at meetings, Legislative Action Day and other legislative-related activities.
“Municipal officials are the driving force behind the League’s legislative success. In addition to setting the legislative priorities, the League’s policy committee members help to provide League staff with a better understanding of the real world implications of proposed legislation,” said Florida League of Cities Legislative Director Scott Dudley. “We appreciate their willingness to serve, as there is a significant commitment of time and energy that goes into developing a policy direction for our legislative efforts.”
Mayor Kilsheimer was elected to Apopka City Council, Seat 3, in April 2012. He was elected for Mayor in 2014.
