The Orlando Sentinel reported on Monday, that there is a third candidate jumping in the race to retire Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.
Linda Grund a non-profit consultant, pushed out this release on her Facebook page. Here are some of the highlights
“I think it’s time for Orlando to have a fresh approach in it’s leadership,” said Grund. “One that gives the citizens a voice. My goal is to be that voice.”
Grund’s vision for Orlando is to nurture a city full of promise, peace, and purpose. Promise: building an environment that supports growth for businesses and citizens. Peace: keeping the streets we live and work in safe and clean. Purpose: managing how our tax dollars and resources are spent to efficiently and effectively best serve our community.
“I want to channel my passion for public service into addressing issues important to all the citizens in the city,” Grund stated.
She joins City Commissioner Phil Diamond, in the uphill climb to replace Mayor Dyer who’s, going to bring a hefty fund raising war chest to the race.
You’ve probably read how much Dyer gets on my nerves over the last few months, whether he’s mis-calculating the budget for the new performing arts center, taking his buddies to the luxury boxes at the Amway, or criss-crossing the globe on vacation.
The Mayor can’t even fix the Lake Eola fountain, or keep the Christmas Tree up.
Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs doesn’t even trust him, and I can’t say I do either.
