Vision, Issues, & Values

     I firmly believe the focus for Orange County needs be on planting the seeds for sustainable, responsible, growth which can only occur by supporting initiatives known to promote quality of life.

     As your Commissioner, I will bring a unique perspective to carrying out the duties and responsibilities of this Office by leveraging my expertise, training, and experience as a twenty (20) plus year law enforcement officer along with my training and experience as a Licensed Real Estate Sales Associate – REALTOR®. Economic growth can be cultivated by focusing on adequately funding public safety, instituting meaningful policies to boost education of youth, implementing infrastructure and transportation needs in a timely manner, and providing for social services that encourage personal growth. These areas are not in order of priority; rather, they must be considered in totality and improved upon simultaneously.

     By primarily focusing our efforts in these areas, I foresee Orange County being able to attract new businesses, increase employment opportunities for higher paying jobs, retain our local graduates for employment, encourage entrepreneurship, and provide a pathway to home ownership. Likewise, residents will be able to enjoy livable neighborhoods and their families well into the future. The ultimate result will be a safer and prosperous Orange County.

Public Safety

     It is no secret that economic growth increases when crime is down, when social services provide solutions, and children start their academic rigor early on in life. Crime can be reduced substantially in Orange County and specifically in District 3, by leveraging technology in a proactive manner. In so doing, crime fighting technologies can greatly reduce crime overall and can have a significant impact in reducing the frequency of gun violence.

     Current elected officials have consistently stated or silently agreed with the notion that crime was down in 2019. The reality of the matter is violent crime was skyrocketing, while non-violent crimes were on the decrease. In 2019, there was a record number of homicides, involving guns, in unincorporated Orange County. The forecast for 2020 does not look to be getting any better using traditional crime-fighting methods.

     There is a need for a change in the mindset of each member of the Orange County Board of County Commissioners. I will lead the charge to change that mindset – to fulfill the obligation of providing for the “public safety and welfare” of our residents and visitors by calling for changes in public policy to utilize the full allocation of funding towards crime fighting initiatives – implemented by County Commissioners – to reduce violent crime in Orange County; such as deterring and detecting gun violence by using ShotSpotter technologies in our communities and on school campuses.

     By changing the mindset and local public policy, the implementation of such programs will afford additional peace of mind over and above the level of protection provided by our law enforcement agencies. A change in public safety policy and using County Commission driven initiatives was successfully done by Miami-Dade County Commissioners, leading to substantial positive impacts on their communities and reduction of violent crime. Please see my article about ShotSpotter for a full explanation and my observations of this technology in use in cities around Florida.

Education

     As your Commissioner and the son of a retired Orange County Public Schools teacher who observed the hurdles teachers endure on a daily basis, I will support the Orange County Public School teachers in their endeavor to seek fair and equitable salaries for the job they do everyday with our youth. I will also support the Orange County School Board in their endeavor to plan and construct schools in a timely manner by amending outdated policies that require a certain amount of acreage for construction of new school campuses and the renovation of our existing schools. Rest assured, I will closely scrutinize any Resolution coming from the Orange County School Board seeking approval by the Orange County Board of County Commissioners; such as a referendum to be placed on a ballot.

     I will support both sides of this education equation so that we can promote sustained learning for our youth. Sustained learning must be present from preschool all the way through to college graduation because it has an exponentially positive impact on economic growth and keeping students engaged with coursework. Otherwise, a distracted student will choose counterproductive activities that affect their level of education, which in turn may lead them to criminal activity.

Infrastructure and Transportation

     I grew up in District 3 and have watched traffic congestion increase to the bottleneck traffic we experience every morning and afternoon while commuting to and from our homes. Every aspect of our infrastructure and transportation in Orange County needs to be evaluated using a cost-benefit analysis to include road improvements, traffic congestion, transit-oriented development, mass transit, and our multi-modal transportation corridor plan.

     I am for maximizing efficiency in our county government and fully utilizing Tourism Development Tax funds, windfall funds from the re-capture of unpaid or fraudulently exempted property taxes, or from those failing to pay taxes. In so doing, your government can pay for long-overdue transportation projects in addition to selling bonds without raising your taxes. I do not support the 1 cent sales tax increase for transportation because existing revenue sources have not been fully utilized by our current elected officials.

Social Services

     I have personally seen the pitfalls and failures of social services in Orange County; both as a law enforcement officer and personally by watching friends endure making difficult decisions when help wasn’t available through services that were supposed to be available. Fortunately, my friends sought me out for guidance, knowing I would keep their problem in confidence and help them get the necessary medical treatment. My friends are healthy now but I shudder to think what would have happened if they had not reached out to me.

     As your Commissioner, I will be in a position to work with the leadership of Orange County agencies to coordinate the use of existing Orange County assets and resources. I am of where some shortcomings exist and will advocate for adequate funding and support for programs that can assist residents to include, but not limited to, the treatment of those diagnosed with mental illness, finding solutions for those who may be homeless, and targeting those involved in criminal activity.
