The Florida Local Government Coalition of which FRPA is a part, has recently released a Citizen Engagement Toolkit to assist with its Local Works Campaign. FRPA has officially adopted a Resolution encouraging members to host activities celebrating Local Works.
The Florida Local Government Coalition was developed to advocate for local governments by educating residents and sharing resources among its members. The Florida League of Cities manages the coalition, which now has more than 25 local government association partners. For 2013, the Coalition's primary initiative is “to help Florida citizens understand, appreciate and support local government and the services and values these governments bring to millions of lives each day.” To do this, the coalition is launching a public awareness campaign with the theme Local Government - Quality Services You Can Trust.
To help promote this theme, the official name of the public awareness campaign is “Local Works.” Local governments provide trusted services that millions of Floridians depend on. It’s time to share our stories.
