ORRA recommends candidates for November 8 election
Tuesday, November 1, 2011
The Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association supports candidates for two offices to be determined by voters on November 8:
- Altamonte Springs Mayor – Bob O’Malley
- City of Lake Mary Commission Seat 3 – Blair Thomas Harle
The ORRA Governmental Affairs Committee screened all candidates for both races prior to making its recommendations to the ORRA Board of Directors. The committee favored O’Malley because he demonstrated familiarity with Altamonte Springs budget issues, provided specific suggestions for increasing city revenue; and was open to addressing REALTOR® concerns regarding directional signage. The committee favored Harle due his knowledge of issues facing Lake Mary and his experience as a member of the local planning board.
Each candidate will receive a $250 campaign contribution from the REALTOR® Political Action Committee.
