The Florida League of Cities, the united voice for Florida’s municipal governments, announced that Port Orange Mayor Don Burnette was recently appointed to serve on the Florida League of Cities 2023- 2024 Transportation and Intergovernmental Relations Committee, one of the League’s five Legislative Policy Committees.
Legislative Policy Committee chairs, vice chairs, and members were appointed by Florida League of Cities President Greg Ross, Mayor of Cooper City.
As a Legislative Policy Committee member, Burnette will help develop the League’s Legislative Platform, which details priority issues that are most likely to affect daily municipal governance and local decision-making during the upcoming legislative session, as well as help League staff understand the real-world implications of proposed legislation. Committee members are also asked to serve as advocates for local decision-making throughout the legislative process. Burnette currently serves on the Florida League of Cities Board of Directors for the Third District and is a Florida League of Cities Hometown Hero Award winner.
“I appreciate the opportunity to service once again as I have in the past and bring back to Port Orange the knowledge that comes along with the ability to collaborate with others around the state and move forward with the issues that will benefit all of our cities, said Burnette.
Mayor Burnette has served as the Mayor of Port Orange since 2016. He was elected to the City Council in 2010, representing District 2. Burnette graduated Spruce Creek High School and has a Bachelor's and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Central Florida.
