Coffee, Cake & Civics 101 was held at the Ponce Inlet Community Center on April 17th, 2021. The event was sponsored by the Volusia League of Cities and featured a presentation by Vice Mayor Lois Paritsky. Orlando City Commissioner Tony Ortiz, President of the Florida League of Cities was also present to address the gathering.
Almost 100 neighbors attended, enjoying coffee, cake and a recap of pending legislation that could impact our community. Those in attendance learned how easy it has become to join the effort and have your voice heard by our elected officials in Tallahassee and Washington DC. Vice Mayor Paritsky serves as the Advocacy Chair for the Volusia League of Cities and is a two time winner of the Home Rule Hero award. She explained how a bill becomes a law in Florida.
