Candidate Q&As

2021

Voters in Ocoee, Windermere and Winter Garden will head to the polls March 9 to elect several officials for their respective governing boards. Editor Norine Dworkin is sitting down with candidates across the three municipalities to hear where they stand on issues affecting their cities or towns, ideas they will bring and/or accomplishments they've achieved and views about diversity and other matters. We will post these Q&A interviews as we complete them. Photos of candidates indicate published stories.
