Statement from Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings | October 18, 2023

Mayor Demings' Seal“Today’s news will hopefully bring some measure of comfort to the Pulse survivors, and to the families and loved ones of the 49 Angels. When the site becomes a permanent memorial, it will be a place for reflection and love. I want to express my appreciation to the City of Orlando for stepping up to bring resolution to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the site of the tragedy. Let us never forget and learn to value each other despite our differences. It will be through moving forward that we continue to honor the legacy of those we lost.

Orange County will be meeting with the onePULSE Foundation to discuss our current investment in the proposed museum.”

– Jerry L. Demings, Orange County Mayor
