Corrections official and former Candidate for Orange County Commission District 2, Patricia Rumph, has endorsed Eatonville Vice-Mayor Alvin Moore in the runoff to replace termed out incumbent Fred Brummer.
“I think Alvin will be the best person to meet the needs of all the residents in District 2.” Rumph said, “I have seen his efforts to provide activities for children and reduce crime in Eatonville, we need that throughout the District. I have gotten to observe him over this past year and know he is ready to lead and will restore and protect our neighborhoods.”
Rumph was lauded at the end of the primary last month, when she came just a few dozen votes short of making the runoff herself, despite spending a fraction of the other candidates in the race.
Moore was grateful for Rumph’s support and also praised her in his release…
“Ms. Rumph is a class act, she offered me her congratulations for moving forward to the runoff.” Vice Mayor Moore said, “Last week we met and had a chance to discuss issues that we both thought were important to the voters in District 2. After sharing her concerns Ms. Rumph offered her support going forward. Ms. Rumph always conducted her campaign in a professional manner and raised issues important to residents in District 2. I admire her career with the Department of Corrections, we need people who are willing to do the tough jobs and give back to our community.” he closes “In an election where women won every local race or went on to a November run-off except in District 2, I am honored to have the support of Ms. Rumph. I respect the power of women voters because my mother, mother-in-law and wife(who runs my business) wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Moore faces State Representative Bryan Nelson for the seat that consists of Apopka, Ocoee, and Pine Hills.
