District 4 Commissioner Race Heads to Runoff As Gomez Cordero Just Misses 50%

The race for Orange County Commissioner in District 4 will continue to a November runoff election, as incumbent Commissioner Maribel Gomez Cordero just missed reaching 50% of the vote on August 23rd.

Gomez Cordero did receive the most votes, with a total of 11,737 or 47.7% in Orange County District 4. It appears her opponent Mercedes Fonseca will advance to the runoff, as the Supervisor of Elections shows Fonseca with 6,482 votes, or 26.35%, compared to Karl Pearson with 6,379 votes, or 25.93%. There will likely need to be a recount to confirm the results for second place.




There were 24,598 total votes in District 4 County Commissioner election, out of 146,758 total eligible voters.

Recently, Commissioner Gomez Cordero joined Commissioner Emily Bonilla, Commissioner Mayra Uribe, and Commissioner Nicole Wilson to vote in favor of placing a local Rent Stabilization Ordinance on the November ballot. The 4-3 vote went against Mayor Jerry Demings, who is against the measure. Demings also easily won re-election without much of an opposition campaign.
