Orlando Sentinel Editorial Board Endorses Lee Constantine For Seminole County Commission, District 3

Constantine in District 3

The argument for Republicans to select incumbent Lee Constantine is much the same as the argument for Dallari. If anything Constantine was even more outspoken in his opposition to River Cross and his defense of the voters will to keep eastern Seminole County rural.

Constantine’s passion for land preservation is consistent with his long record of advocating for environmental protection. He’s been on the front lines for years in trying to protect Seminole’s waterways, including his early support for rules to stop fertilizer from polluting waterways.

Like Dallari, he’s supported policies that have made Seminole County a place where people want to live, not a place to avoid.

The two also supported the county’s decision — a wise but difficult decision — to require that residents wear face coverings in public places to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

Constantine’s opponent isn’t so sure. Ben Paris, a Longwood city commissioner who seems well versed on some of the issues, says there should have been more public input, raising the possibility of more delays and more community spread.

Paris said he would have voted against the River Cross project “as presented” but begged off committing to how he would have voted on the land swap, saying he didn’t have much information on it. That’s quite a statement, considering how much information was available and how passionately Seminole residents felt about it. He either wasn’t paying attention or didn’t want to answer the question.

Republican voters have zero reason to doubt where Constantine comes down on protecting the rural zone, and whose side he’s on. They should pick him as their candidate to run in the fall.

Orlando Sentinel Endorses Lee Constantine for Seminole County Commission, District 3

The Seminole County School Board and Superintendent Walt Griffin released their re-opening plans for the 2020-2021 school year this past week. After careful consideration and input from parents, teachers, employees, and members of our community, I think they provided an exemplary plan with multiple options for parents to ensure our students continue to receive the best education possible during these uncertain times. I commend their hard work over these last few months and as your County Commissioner, I stand ready to support them as they implement this re-opening plan. At our last meeting, the Seminole County Commission committed CARES Act funds to supplement the needs of Seminole County Schools during the school re-opening. To review their school re-opening plans, please visit https://www.scps.k12.fl.us/covid19/.

In his own words, my opponent says he will defend the Rural Boundary “but”…

There’s no “but” when it comes to the Rural Boundary in Seminole County. The voters approved the Rural Boundary in 2004 and that’s how it should stay. And taxpayers should NOT pay off developers who now own land in the Rural Boundary!

I PLEDGE to continue to DEFEND the Rural Boundary in Seminole County!

The citizens have spoken – and it has been my honor to help them defend Seminole County’s Rural Boundary. Over the last few years, I have voted to defeat the River Cross project, fought against legislative amendments that were designed to circumvent the county’s protection of the Rural Boundary, and led the charge to “Stop the Swap” of our Econ River Wilderness Area. I PLEDGE to continue to preserve and defend our Rural Boundary and Seminole County’s natural lands.
