Orange County Vice Mayor and District 6 Commissioner Victoria Siplin has filed for reelection in hopes the voters will give her four more years to serve the area.
Siplin was first elected in 2014, defeating a run off opponent who outspent her several times over. She wants to bring that same work ethic and energy to this campaign.
“My whole campaign slogan was progress and it is my objective to continue that progress especially as it relates to economic development, jobs for our community and assisting our non-profits.” said Siplin, who adds it’s all of those factors that are helping to fight crime in the area and create a pathway to success for the younger members of her district.
If reelected Siplin plans on developing more resources for seniors, which she believes could be a challeng with the current political battles taking place in Washington. These resources include better access to housing and health care.
“We need to make sure we take care of our seniors, who I call our seasoned community and to do what I can for our young community to make sure they’re prepared.” adds Siplin. “There’s a lot that needs to be done, there is a lot that has been done, and I hope I can continue working on these initiatives.”
District 6 consists of the Pine Hills, Parramore communities, as well as parts of West Orange County. Siplin is the wife of longtime state lawmaker, Gary Siplin.
