WINTER PARK – Eatonville Vice Mayor Alvin Moore is pleased to have received the endorsement of Patricia Rumph, a former opponent, in his race for Orange County Commission.
“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.”
The top issue both candidates want to address is public safety. Vice Mayor Moore vowed to work closely with the Sheriff to address residents concerns and seek community solutions. Another issue that both candidates agree on is that resources need to be shared throughout the District. They both shared with each other conversations with residents in Lockhart, Ocoee, Pine Hills, South Apopka and Zellwood who feel they didn’t have the attention of past Commissioners.
“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.”
Rumph will be one of the people Vice Mayor Moore will turn to for counsel on issues effecting the District. Ms. Rumph has experience in the community and knowledge of the County administration based on her serving on County Advisory Boards – Affordable Housing, Children and Family Services, Citizen’s Review, Community Development and Minority/Women’s Business Enterprise.
“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.” Vice Mayor Moore added, “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.”
