Matthew Surrency Receives the E. Harris Drew Municipal Official Lifetime Achievement Award

Longworth as he presented Surrency with the award. “He has a passion for our local communities and the families who call them home, and he’s committed to protecting their right to self-govern. We’re honored to recognize his service and the contributions he’s made to so many cities.”

Presented annually, this is the League’s most prestigious award. "This really is an honor," said Surrency as he was joined on stage by his wife and children along with the Florida League of Cities officers to accept the award. “Especially when you consider all those public officials who have received this award before me, they're all upstanding public servants and legends of our association.” Read the Press Release
