Chair’s Message

Welcome to the City, County and Local Government Section’s Website


Robert L. TeitlerOn behalf of The Florida Bar, I would like to welcome you to the City, County and Local Government Law Section’s website.  We are a Section of The Florida Bar comprised of nearly 1700 lawyers, committed to serving our members and the public as a forum for research and discussion in the development of local government law.

We take great pride in our website and the many resources that it offers our members.  If you are not currently a member, please join today so you can take advantage of our Local Government Law Desk Book, electronic mailing list (list serve), live CLEs, Facebook page updates, our newsletter The Agenda, and this website.

I am honored to serve as Chair of this Section and grateful for the many past chairs who have served and who continue to contribute to the Section.  It is particularly significant for me that my uncle, Paul S. Buchman, was the very first Chair of this Section over 40 years ago.  I will strive to follow his legacy and impart his passion for public service and local government law.

Feel free to contact me with your ideas and interest in serving the Section.  I certainly welcome your input.

Robert L. Teitler
