St. Cloud Mayor Nathan Blackwell has been appointed as 2nd Vice President of the Tri-County League of Cities.

Blackwell, who was re-elected St. Cloud Mayor in the November election, has been a member of the Tri-County League of Cities for four years and on the Board of Directors for one year.

The Tri-County League of Cities is made up of city and county officials from Osceola, Orange and Seminole counties. The group works together to collectively solve issues and strategically plan in order to better serve the welfare of the area’s residents.

“I look forward to working with other city and county officials to make a positive and lasting difference in Central Florida – and especially in St. Cloud,” Mayor Blackwell said.
