Incumbent Supervisor Daisy Morales and Sean McQuade have filed to run in the Orange County Soil and Water Conservation District for her District 2 seat.

Morales, of Orlando, is finishing her first term on the district. McQuade, of Apopka, is a first-time candidate, but has been active in area causes for some time.

Already in the field is Robert Lefkowitz, of Orlando, who filed to run in late April.

Morales said she has a proven record of outreach, working in the schools, and helping arrange for grants to schools, home owners and land owners seeking assistance with conservation efforts.

“I’m very focused on the communities of color and the Spanish-speaking communities. Those are the most vulnerable people and they have not gotten the proper information on resources for protecting the environment,” she said.

In a news release, McQuade pledged to bring more awareness, education, partnerships, and sustainability to the district board, and to the natural resources of Orange County.

“I have a strong background with experience in advocating for others, putting the greater good first and bringing people together,” he stated in the release. “I want to use these skills to expand on the education programs the board has previously done and really grow awareness that leads to positive action.”
