KISSIMMEE, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Kissimmee City Commissioner candidate Andrew Jeng, who is Chinese American, is winning the race on diversity and inclusion by a landslide, earning endorsements from Puerto Rican and African American elected officials. Kissimmee City Commissioner Angela Eady, the first African American to be elected to Kissimmee City Commission, is the latest elected official to endorse Jeng for Kissimmee City Commissioner.
Commissioner Angela Eady’s Statement:
“Andrew supports updating our transportation system…resolving our homelessness issue…and unifying the city,” Eady stated in her video endorsement. “We all need to get on board and support Andrew Jeng for Kissimmee Commission, Seat 2.”
“I thank Commissioner Angela Eady for partnering with me in my ongoing advocacy for Kissimmee’s African American community,” said Jeng. “I’m always honored to meet voters and learn more about what matters most to them, and every community is important. Diversity is what makes Kissimmee the beautiful and promising city that it is.”
Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings and Osceola Soil & Water Conservation District Supervisor Deborah Livingston are the other African American elected officials who have announced their endorsement of Jeng’s candidacy.
Jeng and Felix Ortiz were forced into a runoff election because no candidate obtained the required votes to win the primary. They will face off in the November 6th general election.
