Orlando, January 17, 2020 – In one of his first actions of 2020, Governor Ron DeSantis appointed Glenton Gilzean Jr., the President and CEO of the Central Florida Urban League, to the State of Florida’s 2020 Census Statewide Complete Count Committee.
Gilzean joins a diverse committee, chaired by Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Núñez, and is composed of representatives from local governments as well as businesses and community leaders. The goal of the committee is to ensure that all Floridians are aware of the upcoming census and will be equally represented in the final count.
This marks the fifth time that Mr. Gilzean has received a gubernatorial appointment. In 2019, Governor Ron DeSantis appointed Mr. Gilzean to the Florida Commission on Ethics. Previously, Governor Rick Scott appointed Mr. Gilzean to the Pinellas County School Board (2012), to the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) Board of Trustees (2013) and to the Ninth Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission (2016).
