2015 Home Rule Hero
At the conference, Cooper will be among those to receive the Florida League of Cities "2015 Home Rule Hero" award.
Advocate for Municipal Issues
The work for which Cooper is being honored includes membership on the Growth Management Legislative Committee, the Finance Legislative Committee, Board of Directors for the Tri-County League of Cities, and as a member of the advocacy team that addressed municipal issues in Tallahassee.
Local Voice on What Matters to Cities
"These local government officials earned this prestigious award for their tireless efforts to advance the League's legislative agenda," wrote Florida League of Cities Legislative Director Scott Dudley. "These men and women are some of the Florida League of Cities' biggest advocates for municipal issues, always willing and ready to contact legislators and travel to Tallahassee to be sure a local voice is heard on issues that are important to cities. It is clear that these public servants have devoted themselves to Florida's citizens and will remain loyal to their cities and state far into the future."
