The Coalition strives to keep its members informed of the issues affecting multiple layers of local government, which encourages understanding and support for one another. Studies show that in issues that matter the most, citizens trust local government more than any other level of government. With an estimated 175,000-plus local government employees now connected through the Florida Local Government Coalition, this growing network is a powerful resource, and a means by which we can all work together for the common good.
