Events

Every Thursday, Commissioner Wilson and her staff post host a live Office Hours video on our Facebook page. All viewers are welcome to bring their questions to the comments section, or even email them to District1@ocfl.net in advance. Our aim with these weekly office hours is to pull back the curtain of local government and show Orange County Residents what goes on behind the scenes once an elected official is sworn into office.

Past Office Hours videos can also be found on this Youtube playlist!

Commissioner Wilson also hosts or attends many in-person events, including Town Halls, Meet and Greets, and open forums. Whenever possible, we try to provide streams of these events for community members unable to attend.
