Osceola County Commissioner Viviana Janer has received the endorsement of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer in her campaign for re-election in the county’s District 2, her campaign announced.

“Viviana Janer is a dynamo that has been an advocate for Osceola since elected, especially when it comes to creating additional transportation and affordable housing options … She is a strong regional partner for the Central Florida area, and as Mayor of Orlando, I have the pleasure of working with her on multiple boards. I hope you will join me in supporting Viviana’s re-election to the Osceola County Commission,” Dyer stated in a news release issued by Janer’s campaign.

Janer, elected in 2014 and re-elected in 2014, faces two Democrats in the Aug. 28 primary for the seat, Rolando Banasco and Janette Martinez. Wanda Rentas, a former Kissimmee commissioner, is unopposed seeking the Republican nomination.

“I am honored to accept the endorsement of Mayor Buddy Dyer and look forward to continue to work together to better Osceola County and Central Florida,” Janer stated in the release.
