Congressman Darren Soto Holds Open House for Main District Office in Downtown Kissimmee

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Congressman Darren Soto (FL-09) held an open house for his main district office in downtown Kissimmee Thursday evening.

The new office is located directly across Rose Street from the Osceola County Courthouse. The Carson Bryan House was originally constructed in the 1900’s and it is ahistoric landmark in the City of Kissimmee. The century-old house is the last remaining example of Folk Victorian architecture in Osceola County. It has been used as a museum, for office spaces, and community meetings.

“I am grateful to the people of Central Florida and our District for their continued support and for electing me to be their voice in Congress,” Soto said in a released statement. “We are fortunate to offer the services our constituents need from one of Kissimmee’s historical gems, the ‘Bryan House’. This office will serve as our main point of contact with our community and we want to let the public know we are here to serve you and open for business.”

“This is an opportunity for the public to meet our staff, voice their concerns and learn about the variety of services and assistance our office can provide,” District Director Alex Barrio stated in a released statement.

Constituents, area law enforcement and elected officials gathered indoors and outdoors to take pictures with Congressman Soto, who became the first Puerto Rican from Florida elected to Congress during the November 2016 general election.

The elected officials who were in attendance include State Senator Victor Torres, Orange-Osceola County State Attorney Aramis Ayala, Osceola County Sheriff Russell Gibson, Osceola County Commissioner Vivianna Janet, Kissimmee Mayor Jose A. Alvarez, Kissimmee Commissioner Olga Gonzalez, Orange County Soil & Water Supervisor Daisy Morales, Orange County Soil & Water Supervisor Eric Rollings, Orange County School Board Member Kat Gordon, Polk County Soil & Water Supervisor Brett Upthagrove, and Polk County Soil & Water Supervisor Mike Darrow.

Soto’s congressional district includes parts of Orange, Osceola, and Polk Counties.
