Orange County Government Public Information Officer

Statement from Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings | October 27, 2023

Mayor Demings' Seal“Earlier today, I met with the onePULSE Foundation to discuss the status of its proposed museum project. The Foundation presented a letter from its board, expressing their decision to no longer proceed with the project. I understand how difficult this decision was for the foundation and the future of the organization is uncertain.

The circumstances have taken an emotional toll on the families and survivors of the Pulse tragedy, as we continue to honor the 49 Angels. I will be scheduling a Board of County Commission meeting to update the Board and make determinations regarding the next steps for Orange County. We will continue to keep the community informed.”

– Jerry L. Demings, Orange County Mayor
