Deputy Mayor Kenny Johnson Honored with Home Rule Hero Award
The Florida League of Cities (FLC) recently recognized Palm Bay Deputy Mayor Kenny Johnson with a 2020 Home Rule Hero Award. Johnson earned this prestigious award for his efforts throughout the legislative session to promote local voices making local choices, protect the Home Rule powers of Florida’s municipalities and advance the FLC’s legislative agenda.
Home Rule is the ability for a city to address local problems with local solutions with minimal state interference. Home Rule Hero Award recipients are local governments officials, both elected and non-elected, who consistently responded to FLC requests to reach out to members of the Florida legislature and give a local perspective on a variety of issues.
