Challengers, Messina and Semrad Ask Why

ORLANDO, FL, USA, July 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings has refused to debate his primary opponents and has turned down a televised candidate forum on WESH-TV, an NBC affiliate. Demings has been pushing an Orange County Transportation Sales Tax Referendum that will increase voters' taxes. The fate of the increase in sales tax will be decided by voters in November. If passed, the tax increase could generate approximately $600 million in taxpayer money for unspecified transportation improvements.
