Gov. Rick Scott yesterday reappointed Mario J. Bailey, Senior Government Relations Consultant with Becker & Poliakoff’s Government Law & Lobbying team, to serve on the South Florida Regional Planning Council for a two-year term. The council helps determine policies that result in more prosperous and equitable communities, a healthier and cleaner environment, and a more vibrant economy.
Bailey, a noted lobbyist in South Florida and Tallahassee and an influential leader in the community, will work with his 18 colleagues on the council to identify the long-term obstacles and opportunities facing Southeast Florida and support the region’s leaders in developing and implementing effective solutions.
“I am honored to be reappointed to the South Florida Regional Planning Council by Governor Scott,” Bailey said. “I have thoroughly enjoyed working with and learning from a diverse group of elected officials and appointed leaders from Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties and look forward to my next term.”
At Becker & Poliakoff, Bailey works closely with clients from sectors including business, municipal government, and education to advocate for their issues before various government agencies and the state legislature. He was chosen as a 2017 Miami BMe Community Genius Leader, serves as a member of Leadership Miami’s Executive Planning Committee, and was recognized as one of South Florida’s Most Powerful and Influential Black Leaders for 2017 by Legacy Magazine.
