TALLAHASSEE – The Florida League of Cities recently honored City of Tampa tax revenue coordinator Sharon Fox with a Home Rule Hero Award.
This prestigious award was presented to Ms. Fox for her tireless efforts during the 2012 legislative session to advance the League’s legislative agenda and help protect the home rule powers of Florida’s cities. Home Rule Hero Award recipients are local government officials – both elected and no-nelected – who consistently responded to the League’s request to reach out to members of the Legislature and help give a local perspective to an issue.

She brings that same level of commitment and energy to helping the Florida League of Cities lobbying team and is always ready and willing to contact legislators and help advocate in support of home rule. She has and always will be a valuable asset to her city and the State of Florida.”
