Justice Reelected to Board of Statewide Group That Represents Counties
He was also recognized as a Presidential Advocate for his work during the 2020 Legislative Session.
PINELLAS COUNTY – Pinellas County Commissioner Charlie Justice was reelected to the Florida Association of Counties board of directors at the Association’s Annual Business meeting.
Board members are elected to serve for two-year terms. Justice was also selected to serve as the vice chair of the Community and Urban Affairs Committee which reviews and advocates for policies that specifically impact large urban counties like Pinellas.
“I am honored to serve on the FAC board of directors, as well as take on a leadership role on the Community and Urban Affairs Committee. Working with leaders from other counties across the state of Florida and developing good policy that will positively impact our citizens is important work,” Justice said.
Justice was also recognized as a Presidential Advocate for his work during the 2020 Legislative Session. The FAC Presidential Advocate recognition is given to county commissioners who have shown exceptional leadership in advocating with FAC during the 2020 Session to advance the counties’ legislative agenda.
The FAC board of directors is composed of one commissioner from each Florida senate district, elected to office by commissioners of the counties within the respective senate district. The FAC president also appoints six at-large directors to serve a one-year term. The board is responsible for guiding FAC in its mission to preserve and strengthen home rule as well as for setting the legislative policy for the association and approving an annual budget.
“In addition to the executive committee, the board of directors serve as leadership for the association,” FAC Executive Director, Ginger Delegal said. “The board plays a vital role in the strategic vision for the future of FAC, especially in regard to the determination of the association’s legislative priorities and initiatives.”
For more than 85 years, the Florida Association of Counties has represented the diverse interests of Florida’s counties, emphasizing the importance of protecting home rule – the concept that government closest to the people governs best.
