BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – City of Palm Bay Councilman Randy Foster was recently appointed to serve on the Florida League of Cities Federal Action Strike Team.
The FAST committee was created to ensure local voices are heard on Capitol Hill by strengthening the League’s federal relations.
The primary purpose of the committee is to establish proactive and reactive communications with Florida’s 29-member congressional delegation in support of the federal municipal policy.
FAST members meet throughout the year and engage in grassroots advocacy in support of the League’s legislative priorities.
Members are expected to display a strong commitment to and involvement in shaping federal municipal policy, maintain strong and productive relationships with delegation members, and actively lobby members of their delegation in Washington and at home in their district.
“It is an honor to join the Florida League of Cities’ Federal Action Strike Team,” said Foster.
“I am committed to fighting for Palm Bay and the State of Florida to bring in federal dollars and support to make a positive and meaningful impact in our communities.”
The FAST committee will take its policy positions and direction from the League’s resolutions and the National League of Cities (NLC) policy priorities, as well as from the FLC Board.
The 2021 FLC Federal Action Agenda includes infrastructure investments in the water supply, transportation, and broadband sectors, a reworked flood insurance program, cybersecurity, and reimbursement for local governments following natural disasters.
