CLEARWATER - Two of Pinellas County’s most relentless advocates - State Sen. Jack Latvala and Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala - collected prestigious awards from the Florida Association of Counties this week for their leadership and unwavering dedication to ensuring that Florida has strong county governance.

Sen. Latvala was awarded the “Doc” Myers Lifetime County Advocate Award, an honor that is reserved for those elected officials who have consistently distinguished themselves as advocates for local government, and who go above and beyond to protect the rights of counties.

Similarly, Commissioner Latvala received the Marlene Young Presidential Advocacy Award for her steadfast, persistent leadership and extraordinary commitment to preserving the home rule authority of Florida’s 67 counties.

The awards were given during the 2014 annual conference of the Florida Association of Counties, June 17-20, the association’s largest annual event.

Throughout his career in public service, Sen. Latvala has worked tirelessly with counties on a wide variety of issues affecting local government, including Medicaid, the environment, and taxation. He was a crucial supporter of counties’ rights during the 2014 Legislative Session when they fought to bring fairness in the cost-sharing formula established between the state and each county for juvenile detention services.

“I am honored to receive the ‘Doc’ Myers Lifetime County Advocate Award from FAC, and I will continue my commitment to ensuring that my constituents have their voices heard at all levels of government,” the senator said. “I am also very proud of the great work that Commissioner Susan Latvala has done for Florida’s counties, and to be recognized along with her today is a great honor.
