Florida Sheriffs Association Names Martin County Clerk and Comptroller Carolyn Timmann Honorary Sheriff

August 01, 2019

The Florida Sheriffs Association (FSA), one of the largest and most successful state law-enforcement associations in the nation, is pleased to announce that it has named the Honorable Carolyn Timmann as Honorary Sheriff. Clerk Timmann of Martin County accepted this honor Tuesday night at the FSA Summer Conference banquet in Tampa.  

“It is an honor to award Clerk Timmann the title of Honorary Sheriff,” said Florida Sheriffs Association President and Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter. “In 2024, all 67 Florida sheriffs will be elected by the people, and that is largely due to Clerk Timmann being such an incredible champion for Florida’s constitutional officers.” 

Clerk Timmann was presented the honorary title based on her efforts and dedication to ensure that the citizens of Florida were able to decide who their elected constitutional officers would be in all 67 counties. In 2017, Clerk Timmann was appointed to the Constitution Revision Commission and filed Proposal 13 that was eventually placed on the ballot as Amendment 10, and on November 6, 2018, Amendment 10 passed with 63% support. The elected and independent office of sheriff is now enshrined in our State Constitution for all 67 counties.

By being such a positive force within FSA, Clerk Timmann has earned nothing short of this honorary title.  Highlight video of Clerk Timmann’s great work:
