Lake County Commissioner Doug Shields was recently elected to the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) Board of Directors.
During his two-year term, Commissioner Shields will represent the local interests of Lake County by overseeing the association’s efforts and initiatives.
“It’s an honor to represent Lake County on the FAC board of directors,” Shields said. “I am looking forward to working with fellow commissioners across the great state of Florida to continue to ensure our state and especially our county are exceptional places in which to live, work, and visit.”
“As an elected member of the board of directors, a commissioner must be committed to representing the local interests and be willing to speak up for their communities,” FAC Executive Director Ginger Delegal said. “Commissioner Shields has demonstrated these qualities and been carefully selected by fellow commissioners to take on this position. I am confident he will excel on the board of directors and lead with grace and skillfulness.”
