In a countrywide first, supporters are now hoping the idea could stretch beyond the 3,000-resident city.
State Rep. Anthony Sabatini posted a photo of the proclamation, which declares February 1 through February 6 as “Donald J. Trump week” in the city, reported Fox 10.
Sabatini said he spoke in support of the proclamation at Frostproof City Hall on Monday.
“Good to be in the City of Frostproof tonight to speak in favor of a Proclamation declaring this week “Donald Trump Week.” First city in the nation to do this!” wrote Sabatini on Facebook.
The city’s Facebook page shared the city council meeting agenda for February 1, which listed the proclamation as one of the agenda items up for discussion.
Mayor Jon Albert’s proclamation praised Trump’s accomplishments over his four years in office, and pointed out that he received 76% of the vote in Frostproof during the 2020 election.
The news was welcomed by residents, who called for more cities across the state and country to follow suit.
“Way to go..Frostproof!! Now, the rest of Florida needs to do it!!” wrote one supporter on Facebook.
Others called the plan “awesome” and “wonderful”.
In January, Sabatini announced that he planned to introduce a bill in the Florida Legislature that would rename US 27 as “President Donald J. Trump Highway”.
The announcement of Trump week in Frostproof comes just days before the former president’s impeachment trial is due to open before the Senate next week.
