TAVARES — Florida Association of Counties (FAC) President and Lake County Commissioner Welton Cadwell and FAC Executive Director Chris Holley have six county stops remaining in the “All About Florida Regional Tour,” which began July 26 in Orange County.
Commissioner Cadwell and Holley are traveling across the state through Aug. 24 to meet with county officials and listen to ideas about how the association can better serve its members. During each county stop, FAC legislative staff will provide a preview of issues to watch during the upcoming legislative session. Members will also learn more about the association’s new branding campaign and how the association is working to elevate awareness of the great work counties do for Florida.
“The response so far has been good,” Cadwell said. “We’re getting great feedback. I’m also enjoying the opportunity to visit with our members on a more personal level.”
All county officials and staff are invited to attend a meeting in their area. The next stop for the tour is Aug. 11 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Alachua County Commission Chambers, located at 12 Southeast First St., Gainesville.
