Thousands of local elected officials and business leaders today received a link to a new website and web-video encouraging Floridians to “Keep it Local”

We believe that the best ideas usually come from the grassroots

The Florida Association of Counties, Florida League of Cities and Florida School Boards Association today announced the formation of a new collaborative of local leaders dedicated to promoting grassroots-driven, home rule solutions to Florida’s most pressing issues. The new initiative, dubbed simply “KeepItLocalFlorida.org” was officially kicked off with the release of a short, 2-minute web-video featuring dozens of local elected officials urging Tallahassee politicians to keep in mind that “government closest to people, governs best.” You can watch the video by clicking here or check out the grassroots “Call to Action” that was sent to local business and civic leaders today by clicking here.

“We believe that the best ideas usually come from the grassroots,” said Candace Lankford, a Volusia County school board member who chairs the new coalition. “And that’s where the best decisions are made, too. KeepItLocalFlorida.org is a new movement with a time-tested message. We want to empower Florida’s towns and taxpayers to protect local decision-making—it’s that simple.”

KeepItLocalFlorida.org is an initiative of civic leaders working to empower Florida’s towns and taxpayers to protect local, grassroots decision-making. KeepItLocalFlorida.org is guided by the simple principle that government closest to the people, governs best.
