A friend of mine from college, Eric Lasso, announced today that he is running for the District 3 Seat on the Orange County Commission. I enthusiastically endorse Eric without reservation, and encourage you to check him out and consider supporting him as well.
If you're familiar with local politics, you know that District 3 is badly in need of the attention of a dedicated representative of their own. I forget the current status of the case, but as you may be aware, the seat became vacant after the previous District 3 Commissioner got in a bit of hot water. After that followed two appointed commissioners from two separate Governors.
The residents of District 3 are understandably frustrated. Fortunately, this year, they finally get to elect their own representative, and I highly recommend Eric Lasso. Eric is a lifelong Florida resident, a Certified Financial Planner (i.e., smart with handling money), and just one of the nicest, most down-to-earth guys you'll ever meet.
Serving in elected office can be challenging. There are a lot of competing demands for your time, attention, and support, but Eric has always shown a prudent decision-making and commitment to ethics and fairness that will serve him well. He has clearly put a lot of thought into this race and has substantive ideas for how to improve local government.
