Statement from Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings | November 8, 2022

Mayor Demings' Seal“My friends, I am sad to report that the 1-penny sales surtax for transportation did not garner enough votes for passage.  I want to thank everyone who worked so hard to get the measure on the ballot and those who hit the campaign trail.

Despite this outcome, Orange County is and will always be a great place to live, work and play.”

– Jerry L. Demings, Orange County Mayor
