Wednesday, April 2, 2014
The Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association has selected to support REALTOR® Frank Scheraldi for election to the Longwood City Commission, District 4 and Cynthia Harris for election to the Orlando City Commission, District 5. The election will take place on April 8.
“Frank Scheraldi (pictured left), a current member of ORRA, is a working residential real estate agent and as such understands the important role that city regulations and enforcement have on real estate values and on property taxes,” says ORRA Chairman Zola Szerencses, RE/MAX 200 Realty. “The Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association is particularly proud to recommend for election a REALTOR® who will bring the real estate perspective into public office.”
ORRA is supporting Cynthia Harris due to her involvement in the community and her knowledge of the critical issues facing Orlando’s District 5. “During her interview with the ORRA Candidate Screening Committee, Cynthia impressed with her solid suggestions that impact residents’ quality of life, an important consideration for REALTORS®,” explains Szerencses. “She offered solid suggestions for addressing quality-of-life issues such as job-training opportunities, education improvements, and healthcare access.”
ORRA considers each candidate up for election based on his or her past voting record and/or sensitivity to real estate issues such as private property rights. Candidates are invited to participate in a screening process by the ORRA Candidate Screening Subcommittee, which then makes candidate recommendations to the ORRA Board of Directors for final approval.
ORRA endorsed candidates who accept campaign contributions are provided with $500 toward their campaign from the REALTORS® Political Action Committee.
