Commissioner Mike Meier Honored with 2019 Home Rule Hero Award

Stuart, FL – The Florida League of Cities recently recognized City of Stuart Commissioner Mike Meier with a 2019 Home Rule Hero Award.
Commissioner Meier earned this prestigious award for his tireless efforts in protecting the Home Rule powers of Florida’s municipalities and advancing 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 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 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.

“It’s an honor to receive this award for my advocacy work with the Treasure Coast Regional League of Cities, but I must also recognize and thank our hardworking staff and legislative partners,” said Commissioner Meier. “The threats to our local ability to plan, grow, and protect our communities continue each year, and I look forward to staying engaged in the fight for Home Rule.”
