Broward County Commissioner Chip LaMarca has been presented with the Florida Association of Counties’ (FAC) Presidential Advocacy Award. The award is given annually to county commissioners who have shown exceptional leadership in partnering with FAC to advance the counties’ legislative agenda.
“It is my honor to serve and represent the people of Broward County. When the issues that are important to our community are on the table, you can count on me to always advocate for what is best for our residents and visitors. These economic development resources are critical in our efforts to recruit and retain businesses of all sizes to Broward County,” said Commissioner Chip LaMarca.
According to FAC, Commissioner LaMarca was an invaluable asset during the Legislative Session and showed exceptional commitment to advancing public policy. LaMarca worked closely with legislators to find solutions streamlining the local business tax.
