Tropical Storm Debby took an evening off on the East Side of Orlando yesterday and it was enough of a break from the stormy weather to allow candidates from all of the races in Orange and Seminole County to come together and meet with voters at the EOCC East Side Hob Nob and Straw Poll.
Attendees were treated to BBQ and political conversation with almost every candidate that will be on a ballot in the region. The straw poll featured races from all offices, from President, down to the lesser known judicial and commission races.
So many pictures and results, let’s get right to it!
Candidate Photos and Links to websites. If I didn’t get yours, send me an email.
