The Florida Association of Counties (FAC) has reappointed Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey to serve as the chairwoman of the organization’s Federal Policy Committee, according to a county news release.
The appointment is for the 2021-2022 fiscal year.
“It is my honor to serve another term as chair of the federal policy committee,” Starkey said, in the release.
Starkey also noted that the FAC “does an excellent job of uniting local voices across the state to develop a federal advocacy program to share with national leaders and lawmakers.”
As committee chair, Starkey will assist the FAC in leading the development process of policies that will guide the formation of the FAC’s agenda for the 2022 legislative session.
“Commissioner Starkey has demonstrated remarkable insight into counties’ needs, as well as a broad understanding of the various challenges facing Floridians today. Her voice is guaranteed to bring much-needed improvements for our communities this upcoming legislative season,” Ginger Delegal, FAC executive director said in the release.
“Having watched her commitment and service over the years, FAC is delighted to welcome her as a key player for rallying behind local voices,” Delegal added.
The statewide organization has represented the diverse interests of Florida’s counties for 85, with an emphasis on the importance of protecting home rule – the concept that government closest to the people governs best.
