VIDEO: Orange County Black Elected Officials Hold Town Hall Panel Discussion

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – The Orlando Alumni Chapter of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority and the NAACP Orange County Branch hosted the black elected officials that represent Orange County for a town hall at the L. Claudia Allen Senior Center Monday night.

STAR 94.5 personality Monica May moderated the six-member panel, which spanned state, county, and local government: State Senator Randolph Bracy, State Representatives Bruce Antone and Kamia Brown, Orange County Vice Mayor and Commissioner Victoria Siplin, and Orlando City Commissioners Regina Hill and Sam Ings. The panel faced probing questions about school safety, what it takes to run and win an election, gun reform, bullying, Obamacare expansion, and more. The room filled up, and the town hall quickly became standing room only. The elected officials answered the questions presented to them in full candor. Their answers were passionate and unfiltered, but the audience, hungry to hear those answers, was calm and respectful.

Though several probing questions were answered, there were still many left unaddressed. Therefore, the officials referred the audience to their aides, which were present in the room, to further address any questions they had that weren’t answered. Commissioner Siplin even went so far as to offer her cell phone number.
