Former Orange County Mayor Jacobs Endorses Commissioner Ings for Orlando Mayor

ORLANDO, Fla., – City Commissioner Samuel B. Ings has picked up an early endorsement from Former Orange County Mayor, Teresa Jacobs less than six weeks after announcing his candidacy to become Orlando’s Mayor. Jacobs, who has dominated her political opponents by winning two-terms as Orange County Commissioner and as Orange County Mayor, says she knows that Ings is a proven servant of the people of Orlando.

“During the 12 years I have known Commissioner Sam Ings, I have developed a true admiration and deep respect for his commitment and unwavering dedication to the citizens of Orlando,“ said Jacobs, who was elected as Chair of the Orange County School Board after her term as Orange County Mayor expired.

“Commissioner Ings doesn’t just talk about public service, he is the personification of it. For 30 years, he put his life on the line every day to make sure that our neighborhoods and children were safe, and small and large businesses alike, could thrive,” she said.

Ings says that he appreciates the endorsement from Jacobs because she is someone who has consistently received high approval ratings with the voters. “The voters believe in her and the voters trust her,” Ings said. “When I am elected Mayor of Orlando I will bring a new era of trustworthy leadership to Orlando with a transparent form of government that is open to all people, as well,” he said.

Ings is focusing on five key areas as part of his campaign platform once he is elected Orlando Mayor; crime prevention and public safety, economic development, and roads and infrastructure. A more inclusive Orlando and affordable housing are high on his list of campaign priorities.

Jacobs added, “I am confident that Sam Ings can lead Orlando to a bright future where our history will always be cherished, our trust will be honored, and our children will be proud to call Orlando home,” she said.

Orlando’s next election is Tuesday, November 5, 2019.
