Welcome to the homepage for Orange County, Florida. We invite you to explore our
webpages for historical information, job opportunities, and other information about services
offered by our local county government. I am elated for the opportunity to continue my
public service as Orange County Mayor after serving as the elected Sheriff for a decade. I
look forward to what we can achieve together. On August 28, 2018, I was elected as the fifth
Mayor and was sworn in on December 4, 2018. The future holds great opportunities for us to
build on Orange County’s thriving and robust economy. My primary focus will be on smart
growth, sustaining livable neighborhoods, public safety, business development, education
and forming partnerships with a regional emphasis.
Orange County is home to nearly 1.4 million residents and is the nation’s top leisure and travel
destination with over 72 million tourist visits in 2017. We have the best theme parks in the
world, such as Walt Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios Orlando. We are home to
the NBA professional basketball team, the Orlando Magic and the MLS professional soccer
team, the Orlando City Soccer. We host numerous other sporting events, such as college bowl
games and the NFL Pro Bowl.
Orange County was ranked as the fastest growing metropolitan area in the United States in
2017, and is a technology-rich region. From its early roots in aviation, aerospace and military
defense products, it has new tech clusters, such as modeling, simulation and training, electrooptics and lasers, digital media, interactive entertainment, microelectronics, life sciences and healthcare and medical technologies. Nearly 99,000 building structure permits were issued
in 2018, which has created a boom in construction activities. The demand for professional,
skilled and service workers will continue, as well as the need for public private partnerships
with higher-education institutions, technical training institutes and companies. Our goal is to
build an entrepreneurial ecosystem that is sustainable for well into the future.
You will be able to explore our website and read about plans for environmental sustainability,
water conservation, green space acquisition, economic development, social services,
expansion of the transportation infrastructure and entrepreneurialism.
I encourage you to check back often for updates.
