The Florida League of Cities recently recognized Wellington Village Clerk Chevelle Nubin with a 2017 Home Rule Hero Award.

Nubin earned the prestigious award for her tireless efforts to advance the league’s legislative agenda and help protect the Home Rule powers during the 2017 regular legislative session.

“Our Home Rule Heroes are shining examples of local advocacy in action,” said Boca Raton Mayor Susan Haynie, president of the Florida League of Cities. “These dedicated municipal officials take time out of their busy schedules to cultivate relationships with their legislators and help them understand the issues that are most important to their constituents back home. Thank you for all you do to help protect Home Rule.”

Home Rule is the ability for a municipality to establish its own form of government and enact ordinances, codes, plans and resolutions without prior state approval. The Home Rule Hero Award recipients are local government officials, both elected and non-elected, 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.

“Ms. Nubin is an outstanding member of our dedicated staff,” Mayor Anne Gerwig said. “We appreciate her professionalism and experience and all that she brings to our village.”
