MAYOR DEMINGS' DIGEST
On Thursday, May 16, I invite you to join me as I present my first State of the County address at the Orange County Convention Center in the West Concourse at the Linda Chapin Theater. At this much-anticipated annual event, guests will have time to network with business and community leaders from across the region. Doors open at 8 a.m., and I will begin my speech at 9 a.m.
In my address, I will highlight the outstanding accomplishments of Orange County Government and our community partners as we prioritize the needs of local residents through innovation, collaboration and inclusiveness. As we look toward the future, my focus is to build a community that works for everyone so no one gets left behind.
Today, our residents enjoy unparalleled economic opportunities, a robust private sector, a world-class modeling, simulation and training (MS&T) industry, and prestigious sports and entertainment events all anchored by our strong hospitality and tourism sector on International Drive. As we continue to build on our successes, the dynamic renaissance of International Drive will continue to position Orange County as the premier global destination for tourism and family entertainment.
The speech will be televised live on Orange TV, which is carried on Spectrum Channel 488, Comcast Channel 9, CenturyLink Channel 1081, digital over-the-air on 10.2, the Roku App Store and live-streamed on www.ocfl.net. The event is complimentary and open to the public. I look forward to the 2019 State of the County and hope you can join us!
