I was honored to be the State Host of the delegation of Macedonian political leaders for the American Council of Young Political Leaders (ACYPL) in December, organizing a 6-day visit in December.
We attended the Joint Pinellas County Commission and Pinellas County Legislative Delegation meeting in Clearwater -- a great opportunity to learn more about inter-governmental relations. We listened to the exchanges between the Commissioners and the Senators and Representatives, learning more about the county's legislative priorities and the responses from the legislators -- trying to make state and local government work for the people and interests of Pinellas County.
