Mayor Seiler welcomes the board

Jack Seiler Ft. Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler, a former member of the Florida House of Representatives, welcomed the Board of Governors to his city for the board’s December meeting.

Recalling his legislative service, Seiler called on the Bar to continue being advocates for the judicial branch and for full funding for the courts.

“If The Florida Bar doesn’t step up on behalf of the judiciary, the third branch of government, there’s a problem,” Seiler said. “When you don’t fund the court system in our system of checks and balances, it is not a fiscal crisis, it is not a budget crisis, it is a constitutional crisis.”
