League of Cities Honors Pinellas Park Official
The League named her a Home Rule Hero.
PINELLAS PARK – The Florida League of Cities recently recognized Lana Beck, communications and government relations administrator, with a 2019 Home Rule Hero Award.
Beck earned the award for her tireless efforts to protect the home rule powers of Florida’s municipalities and tp advance the League’s legislative agenda during the 2019 legislative session.
“The dedication and effort of these local officials during the 2019 legislative session was extraordinary,” said FLC Legislative Director Scott Dudley. “These are some of our biggest advocates for municipal issues, and they’re shining examples of local advocacy in action. On behalf of the League and its legislative team, we’re proud to recognize each and every one of them and thank them for their service.”
Home Rule is the ability of 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 nonelected, 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.
“I am honored to be a recipient of this important award and equally enthusiastic about being a defender of Home Rule for the city of Pinellas Park. That said, the best part about my job are the great people I work with and the residents that I serve,” Beck said.
