Mayor Capote Sworn in as President of Space Coast League of Cities
Mayor William Capote was sworn in on Monday to serve as the President of the Space Coast League of Cities for 2017, replacing outgoing president Stuart Glass of Indialantic. Capote was appointed as First Vice President in 2016 and has been involved with the League since 2010, working to serve the needs of Palm Bay and Brevard County residents. After being sworn in, Capote touched on the importance of the work done so far as well as the direction he hopes to see the League moving in the coming year, with an emphasis on safety in Brevard County.
“I’m thrilled to be leading this very important alliance and will do my best to continue to bring Palm Bay and other municipalities in Brevard County together,” said Capote. “Recent events in places such as Orlando and Fort Lauderdale remind us that we are living in a different world and that we must continue to be diligent in our communities. We must continue to work together as one so that Brevard will remain one of the safest counties in Florida.”
The Space Coast League of Cities is a coalition of Brevard's 16 cities and towns whose objective is to work in a collaborative manner to promote local self-government and serve the needs of Brevard County municipal governments and residents. The goal of the Space Coast League is to work closely with the Florida League of Cities, recognizing the community held belief that local self-government is the foundation of American democracy and of our Florida way of life.
