The Orange County Democratic Black Caucus endorsed Tom Keen Wednesday for the Orlando District 1 commission seat.

Keen, who works in aerospace business development, and Sunshine Grund, a stay-at-home mother and environmentalist, are challenging Commissioner Jim Gray, who is running for his second term. Gray is president of GrayPointe Capital, an Orlando commercial real estate investment firm.

“Tom Keen is the candidate for Florida’s future,” said Orange County Black Caucus President Russell Drake. “His grassroots campaign has reached out to voters directly and he has proven himself to be a driven leader for Orlando.”

Keen said he was honored to receive support from the Democratic Black Caucus.

“We share a vision of a more inclusive and prosperous District 1,” Keen said.

Orlando’s District 1 is the fastest-growing area in the city and includes the Orlando International Airport and Lake Nona.

Ballots have been mailed out and early voting runs through Sunday at the Orange County Supervisor of Elections , 119 W. Kaley, Orlando.

Voters go to the polls Tuesday.

    Orange County Property Appraiser was selling My Ancestors Land that we found were Land Patents of My Ancestors. A.Singh signed a Fake Dossier dedicating my Families Homestead and Irange Groves in Orange County Section 8 Township 24S Range 27E. Mary Freeman who was a widow when she claimed her 39.82hundreths acres. Avalon Rd.. Peter Keen Great Grandfather Section 4 Township 24 Range 27.
    Uncle George Freeman Section 21 Township 24s Range 27E.
    I am a Great Grand Daughter and My Grandmother Nellie Bell Freeman Johnson was to inherit the Orange County Homestead of her Parents. This Land was Private and because Disney World needed sewer retention and reclaimation for the millions of visitors and when they found the well that belonged to my Family. Infratruture is all for Disney World.
    My Family were forced off the land when Mary Freeman was found dead at the Homestead 1942.
    Bureau of Land Management sent me certified copies of my Families Deeds. Oversight and Espionage is not ok. No wonder The Comptroller Hainey and Fogelsong stepped down. No wonder Stephan Carter created a false unverified Affidavit saying the Clerk was relative.
    Singh Owns RCID and he is taking all of the revenue from the timeshares and sending to Dena Bank of India.
    I know that he nor the clerk are not relatives of ours.
    This is so wrong how Orange County has taken advantage of My Families Civil right by Land Patent Law for the Heir of the Claimant to inherit.
    I hope Belvin Perry has realized that not finding it appropriate to hold them accountable. Disney World has Trillions says the New Comptroller Quackenbush.
    My Family were lied to about the Land being sold for TAXES!.
    The Deeds read never to be taxed nor to be taken from said Claimant or her Heirs.
    Because My Grandmother Johnson died before any distribution of the Estate 1961.
    I am asking the Orange County Government to read the Land Patent Deeds. I have requested Information and there should be freedom of that information.
    Reedy Creek Improvement District/Orange County Property Appraiser threatened to remove my Families information from the public record.
    This is not appropriate nor is the lies and manipulated files and especially Parmandand “Rick Singh”.
    I researched and when I found that RCID had his hands on Land that should have been inherited 1942.
    Disney had a Dream of an International Empire.
    Well who is the Trustee of the Estate Land Patents.?.
    We want to resolve, however we realize this must be embarrassing for all of the ones involved. They talk about a WITCH HUNT!. I am a true relative of the saidd Claimants.
