In the Orange County Commission District 1 race, the Orlando Professional Firefighters Local 1365 is in Betsy VanderLey‘s corner this year.
They endorsed her, saying VanderLey was one of the candidates running who would help serve in the best interest of public safety.
“As an experienced public servant with a clear vision for the needs of firefighter[s] and the citizens of Orlando alike, we look forward to working with you on the various important issues you may encounter during your tenure as a county commissioner,” they wrote.
She said she was proud to have the endorsement.
“Our first responders are the real heroes in our community,” she said. “These men and women protect us day in and day out and are some of our community’s most dedicated. I am proud they consider me their partner in this county.”
She is currently facing Bobby Olszewski for the District 1 seat.
