Jamie Titcomb Executive Director, Palm Beach County League of Cities, Inc.
I've known Sharon for over 10 years, during which time we've collaborated on many projects. I got the chance to first work with her while I was serving as a Boynton Beach City Commissioner and Vice Mayor in the mid-Nineties, as she was one of our State Representatives. She always kept us well informed and stayed involved in intergovernmental issues and projects. Beyond my elected terms, as Executive Director for the local league of cities, I've had opportunity to call upon her for legislative needs and found her to always be responsive and helpful.
