Commissioner, City of Bell Isle District 5 - Larry Miles
Commissioner, City of Ocoee District 2 - Mike Hopper

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 funding toward their campaign from the REALTORS® Political Action Committee.
