Chair’s Message

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


Jeannine S. Williams, Chair

Welcome 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 the public.  Our purpose is to serve our members and the public as a forum for research and discussion in the development of local government law.

If you are a member of the Section, you know the benefits of membership.  If you are not a member, please join today so that you may also enjoy the gifts of the Local Government Law Desk Book, electronic mailing list (list serve), live CLEs, Facebook page updates, our newsletter, The Agenda, and this website.

I am excited to serve as chair of this great Section and grateful for the many past chairs who have served and continue to serve our Section.  We have a great history of past leadership who remain actively involved.  The goal is that all government lawyers have the ability to tap into our great resources and legacy of leadership.

Feel free to contact me with your ideas and interest in serving the Section.  I welcome your input.  I’m looking forward to serving the Section with you all!
