State Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, has been honored with the Florida League of Cities’ 2013 Defender of Home Rule Award in recognition of his tireless efforts to advance the League’s legislative agenda and protect the home rule powers of Florida’s cities during the 2013 legislative session. Bradley was honored during the League’s 87th Annual Conference held recently in Orlando.

Bradley was elected to the Florida Senate in 2012 and previously served as a commissioner for Clay County, special magistrate for the City of Green Cove Springs and an assistant state attorney in Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit. He is Board Certified by the Florida Bar as an expert in city, county and local government law. Founded in 1922, the Florida League of Cities is the united voice for Florida’s municipal governments.
