Mayor’s Letter

May is finally here! There is so much to look forward to this month as we celebrate and recognize the people, heritage, and cultures that make Orange County a welcoming and inclusive community.

Join us as we honor heroes past and present during one of many Memorial Day events taking place in Orange County this month. My personal favorites include the Cypress Grove Memorial Day Salute at Cypress Grove Park in Orlando, the annual War Memorial Commemoration Ceremony at the Orange County Courthouse and the Orlando VA Memorial Day Ceremony in Lake Nona.

This month, we also celebrate our Asian American and Pacific Islander community. Enjoy live cultural performances and participate in interactive workshops at our annual Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month Celebration taking place just outside the Orange County Administration Building. You can find more details about this event in this newsletter.

With hurricane season approaching, Now is an ideal time to ensure your household is prepared for severe weather. You can find a full list of storm-related resources, including home safety tips, an emergency preparedness checklist, and more by visiting Orange County’s Hurricane Safety Guide.

Finally, I want to take a moment to wish a happy Mother’s Day to all the devoted mothers and mother figures, including my remarkable wife. Your love, strength and resilience continue to serve as an inspiration.
