Well, you can’t accuse Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs of not having a sense of humor.
That is Mayor Jacobs in a Princess Leia costume promoting the Star Wars Celebration 6 at the Orange County Convention Center.
As strange as it might seem to some, this is a bankable event that generates revenue to the region each time it’s held.
With all of the controversy around renovation for the Citrus Bowl, as well as other projects that depend on successful events like these, every municipal leader should have been in this ad.
That includes Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer who might have been able to pull off an Emperor cloak. Perhaps they’re saving that for the new Performing Arts Center which at this point, looks like an incomplete Death Star.
