Former Channel 9 Eyewitness news reporter Mario Boone is sending a message to Orlando voters by endorsing Lawanna Gelzer for District 6 Orange County Commissioner. In the video endorsement, Boone said he was “enthusiastically” and “whole-heartedly” endorsing Gelzer in the November 8th election.
“Lawanna is a fighter,” Boone added. “She’s for the people. She works hard for the people. She is unbought and she is unbossed. I have no doubt there is no one better suited, better qualified for this job, than Lawanna Gelzer.”
Boone reported with WFTV News in the Central Florida market. His knowledge of local government, politics and issues is clear, and he obviously felt it necessary to weigh in on this Orange County Commissioner race. Gelzer received the most votes in the August election, but is in a runoff against Michael Scott after Supervisor of Elections Bill Cowles changed the vote results.
Boone’s endorsement of Gelzer did not end there.
“I’m encouraging you, and all of your friends, go to the polls – don’t walk, run to the polls – and vote for Lawanna Gelzer to be your next Orange County Commissioner from District 6. She’s for the people.”
