City Commissioner Roy Gold will be installed as the incoming president for Broward League of Cities tonight, May 7, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. at the Coral Springs Heron Bay Marriott. In conjunction with the installation, Broward League of Cities is also proclaiming May 7, 2010 as Roy Gold Day throughout the County.
“I couldn’t have done what I have accomplished without the people I have worked with, the people that have mentored me, the people that I have served and it’s quite an honor,” Commissioner Gold said.
Gold also served as the League’s first vice president on its 2009-2010 Board of Directors and as vice chairman of the League’s Sustainability Committee. Chartered in 1957, the non-profit Broward League of Cities represents and guides the county’s 31 municipal governments.
Gold, elected to the Coral Springs City Commission in 2004, has been a longtime community and environmental activist. For the past 14 years, Gold has been the City’s site leader for the annual Broward Waterway Cleanup. The Coral Springs site regularly attracts the most volunteers.
