Orange County, FL – Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs met today with Hispanic community advocates as a part of her ongoing series of “Mayor’s Coffees” with leaders and citizens from throughout the county. Today’s reception included representatives from various organizations as well as individuals who serve the Hispanic community in a number of areas including of education, social services, veterans’ issues, and healthcare.
“These advocates work on a daily basis to make Orange County a better place to live, work and raise a family,” said Mayor Jacobs. “The dialog we shared today will help us meet community needs by opening lines of communication in order to forge lasting working relationships.”
