  • Ross produced “Cardio Express, a health and wellness initiative, targeting Title 1 Schools in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole County Public Schools. Reaching over 100,000 4th and 5th grade elementary students over a 5 year period.

Ross, a 25-year resident of Orange County who started his career in Orlando after completing his public relations internship on the Walt Disney World College Program, hopes to include his community service work in making recommendations that help develop the various boards and commissions within Orange County. “I look forward to learning how I can best serve MMRB, Commissioner Uribe, and Orange County. But most I hope we can identify some amazing change agents looking for the right place to volunteer and shine,” concluded Ross.

    I’m confused, you appointed a person who committed insurance fraud, refused to pay his mortgage and lived in a house until the bank finally removed him. He trashed the house and he had multiple liens on the property for not paying contractors. He’s had fundraisers where he has kept the money and the list goes on. What were you thinking? You better not let him have his hands anywhere near money. Now, if you don’t believe me I welcome you to check public records, maybe that’s something you should have done before giving this person a job. Well, for any of you that elected this women her appointing him says a ton for her character. Now, if you disagree I welcome the debate. I have the paperwork to back everything I’m saying. Sad day.

    I have found his last to be really dosgy: insurance fraud, faking his own death online, screwing over his friends about a reality show contract, and supporting the current President as an openly gay man and the horrible track record of support for the LGBT community. Mr. Ross has zero integrity from my experience.

    This is a disaster. Orange County District 3 Commissioner Myra Uribe should be ashamed for not using google let alone doing any type of background investigation first.
