Commissioner Bryan Eastman appointed to serve on legislative committee
Published on September 05, 2023
Gainesville City Commissioner Bryan Eastman has been appointed to the Florida League of Cities (FLC) 2023-2024 Municipal Administration committee. During his one-year term, Commissioner Eastman will help develop the League’s Legislative Platform, detailing priority issues that are most likely to affect daily municipal governance and local decision-making during the upcoming legislative session.
“I’ve been a longtime supporter of the work of the Florida League of Cities and their commitment to local communities and local control. I’m honored to be selected to serve on their Municipal Administration Committee,” said Commissioner Eastman.
The Municipal Administration committee focuses on code enforcement, elections, emergency management, gaming, homeland security, public meetings, public property management, public records, public safety and procurement, as well as charter counties and special districts.
“Local government is the one closest to the people, and we need a state that respects home rule and local priorities. I look forward to working with local leaders across Florida to make that happen,” he said.
As a member of FLC’s Municipal Administration committee, Commissioner Eastman will join municipal officials from across the state to help FLC staff visualize the real-world implications of proposed legislation on the communities they serve. To get a broad spectrum of ideas — and better understand the impact of League policy proposals on rural, suburban and urban cities of all sizes — the FLC works to have each of Florida’s cities represented on its legislative policy committees.
