Orange County Democratic Party treasurer Dawn Curtis has entered the race for the Orange County Soil and Water Conservation District seat covering District 4.

Curtis, of Orlando, is the second into the race, following William Derick Ryan of Apopka. They both seek the seat being vacated by the conservation district’s chairman, Eric Rollings, who is running for a seat on the Orange County Commission.

A graduate of Florida State University with a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Phoenix, Curtis has 16 years experience in government, and has assisted non-profits, she stated in a news release.

“When elected, my top priority will be to increase environmental awareness within our communities, work with local agencies on developing community expansion plans that won’t harm our natural resources and make sure our bodies of water remain clean,” she stated in the release.
