Commissioner Kelly Owens re-elected to the Executive Committee of the Small County Coalition

Posted

OKEECHOBEE — Okeechobee County Commissioner Kelly Owens was recently re-elected to the Executive Committee of the Small County Coalition, representing Region 5 in the State of Florida.

“It’s an honor to have the ongoing support of my peers and the opportunity to continue to advocate for small and rural counties,” said Commissioner Owens. “With the upcoming Legislative Session right around the corner, I’m ready to work with the Small County Coalition to improve the financial viability and fiscal capacity of Florida’s local government, while also focusing on pre-emption issues.”

Established in 1992, the Small County Coalition is a statewide alliance of 39 county commissions from small and rural counties with a population smaller than 150,000. The Coalition’s primary mission is to address legislation issues from a small county/rural perspective and work effectively with state agencies’ leadership. Region 5 is the southern region of the coalition and consists of Charlotte, DeSoto, Glades, Hendry, Hardee, Highlands, Indian River, Okeechobee, Martin, and Monroe countries.
