Florida State Rep Heather Fitzenhagen Named Toll Fellow by Council of State Governments
The law firm of Goede, Adamczyk & DeBoest, PLLC is proud to announce the distinguished recognition of one of the firm’s partners. Florida State Representative Heather Fitzenhagen, a partner at the law firm Goede, Adamczyk & DeBoest, PLLC, was named as a Council of State Governments’ (CSG) Henry Toll Fellow on Monday, June 17, 2013. She is the only state legislator in Florida who received this award. On Monday, 34 other state legislators also received Toll Fellowships.
“Individually, these leaders have a proven track record of accomplishing great things; collectively they represent the future leadership of the states, ” said David Adkins, the executive director and CEO of the Council of State Governments. Fitzenhagen said she was looking forward to working with state legislators and members of the executive and judiciary branches of other states when Toll Fellows meet in August.
“I think it is imperative to understand each branch’s view of their domain and why we should or should not alter the balance currently in place, ” Fitzenhagen said. “As a Toll Fellow I would actively engage members of the remaining branches of government to explore this issue. I believe as public servants we should strive to understand, scrutinize and enhance the function of our government.”
“Skills, such as effective communication and strategic thinking, are unique attributes that I believe I possess and will develop further as a result of my Toll Fellowship,” Fitzenhagen added. “Enhancing these skills and cultivating new ones is essential to being an effective leader for the state of Florida.
“I look forward to immersing myself in the program and to being a strong contributor so that I may take away some new perspectives on standard perceptions, ” Fitzenhagen said in conclusion.
“We are extremely proud of our law partner, Heather Fitzenhagen, and her continued success and recognition while serving in office,” says managing partner, John C. Goede. He adds, “Our law firm and clients support Heather in all she does to represent District 78 in Tallahassee.”
