Seminole Council Mini-Home Rule Rally, 8-28-2018

Before Seminole Council Business Meeting on Tuesday, August 28, 2018, Council Members peacefully posed via signs, slogans, sunbursts, hats and bloomin’ flowers… that Consitutional Home Rule is crucial to effective local self-government! The Florida Leguislature over the past 2 years have started to encroach on local government. Stay-back, Tallahassee! We the citizens and locally elected officals got this!

Be assured: We Live Local, We Eat Local, We Shop Local, We Work Local, We Give Local, We certainly can Govern Local!

Power to the Flowers and Power to the Folks of Seminole!
