The Florida League of Cities presented Oakland Mayor Kathy Stark with the John Land Years of Service Award for 25 years of public service.
The resolution, approved by the League of Cities Board of Directors, was presented to the Mayor during the Jan. 14 Town Commission meeting. It recognized her “unselfish commitment to municipal leadership and governance.”
“Municipal leaders strive for excellence in the governance of their city, town or village, and commit themselves to providing quality services, governing effectively and working to improve the quality of life,” reads the resolution.
The Mayor, surrounded by family, friends, residents and her fellow commissioners, accepted the award from League of Cities Membership Resources Manager Mark Sittig.
“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve this town over the last 25 years,” said Mayor Stark.
The League named its Years of Service recognition in honor of John Land, the mayor of Apopka between the years of 1949 and 2014.
