Monroe County Commissioner Michelle Lincoln, as part of the Small County Coalition of Florida, presented appreciation plaques to six state representatives and senators in Tallahassee on Wednesday for their dedication to preserving small county initiatives. Commissioner Lincoln serves on the Coalition’s Executive Committee. The group stopped by the offices of Rep. Jim Mooney and Sen. Ana Maria Rodriguez, Monroe County’s delegation, to thank them for their support. As a bonus, they ran into former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at the capitol and were able to take a picture with him as well.
The Small County Coalition is a non-partisan statewide alliance of county commissions in Florida’s small and rural counties. The Small County Coalition’s primary mission is to help Florida’s small and rural counties address legislative issues from a small county/rural perspective and work effectively with state leadership.
