Government Committee

We research best practices and advocate for government improvements and government in the sunshine.   Our discussions are about political issues that affect Central Florida; these lead to studies and recommended action on the selected issues.

We manage  Observer Corps and attend government meetings, reporting back to the membership.  Also, we support advocacy efforts that include meeting with lawmakers as well as developing  League positions on issues ranging from election laws to finance and taxation.

Program Goals/Priorities for FY 2020-2021



The 2020-2021 year includes August primary election, November election, amendments on ballots, and the beginning of redistricting.


Number 1 – In order to provide timely, accurate and current information on local Orange County Government form, consider and write a list of supported concepts for Orange County Government, so we will be able to respond promptly in the future.


Number 2 –Since governments benefit from knowing they are being regularly watched, continue efforts of Observer Corps volunteers and reports for 13 governing boards. 


Number 3 – As the Orange County Charter Review Commission (CRC) can put issues directly on the 11/2020 ballot changing our form of local government, continue to monitor the CRC and its committees, and prepare position education materials for any items placed on the 11/2020 ballot. 


Number 4 – As election security is an issue of on-going concern, consider possibilities for enhancing election security in Orange County.
