Hello, and welcome to District 1, the fastest growing region in the City of Orlando.  Home to the Orlando International Airport and Lake Nona’s Medical City, the southeast area of Orlando offers both businesses and residents a great place to work, live and enjoy the Central Florida lifestyle.

My staff, which includes Diane Wilhelm, Officer Edgar Malave, and Paula Jimenez are committed to providing District 1 residents and businesses the very best in constituent service.  As a businessman living in Orlando for the past 28 years, I realize it can sometimes be difficult for new residents and entrepreneurs to navigate their way through City government policy and procedures.  That’s why we publish and distribute a bi-monthly electronic newsletter that outlines District 1 opportunities and events. Please let us know if you’d like to be added to the mailing list.  Our team also attends at least 4-5 homeowner association meetings every month to stay in touch with district residents’ concerns, ideas and suggestions. You may even see me at the next neighborhood cleanup and beautification event.

There’s a lot going on, so each day I leverage my private sector philosophies to promote economic expansion and responsible growth. It’s my experience that quality, high-paying jobs for area residents typically translate into better schools, safer neighborhoods and increased home values.  Oftentimes, potential business owners and developers ask me the key to achieving success in District 1 and each time I share a simple formula, “Be a Good Neighbor.”

If you are considering opening a business or relocating your family, I encourage you to call me and we’ll discuss the exciting growth opportunities District 1 has to offer.  You will quickly learn that in the southeast part of town, everyone is called neighbor!
