Eric Rollings, Realtor at uOwn Real Estate, is set to announce his campaign for the Orange Soil and Water Conservation District 4 Supervisor. In lieu of our traditional Rendezvu networking event, the event in November is dedicated to the kick-off for the campaign to elect Eric Rollings.
Eric Rollings is currently holding the appointed position of Associate Supervisor. His knowledge of Orange County, the City of Orlando and the environmental problems that face our area has prompted him to file at the Supervisor of Elections last week. “The critical condition of our water situation in Central Florida needs immediate attention. From our natural springs to our drinking water and waterways, we are in trouble. Working together with municipalities, businesses and neighborhoods, we can help identify a better way to manage or cure our situations.”
Since 1989, Eric Rollings continues to be an Orange County resident and active community member. Besides the aforementioned Associate Supervisor, he has held the position of President of the Lake Davis/Greenwood Neighborhood Association. Currently he is Vice President-Elect of Wadeview Park Neighborhood Association, appointed to the Community Development Block Grant Program by City Commissioner Patty Sheehan, Membership Director for The Metropolitan Business Association, and a Governmental Affairs Board Member for the Orlando Regional Realtor Association.

This week, Orlando's LGBT community will Come out with Pride in a week full of events. This Saturday, October 5th, is the big day in Lake Eola Park. Last year, it was estimated that over 100,000 people came out to the park. With vendors, events, and even a parade, the enormous gathering will bring the community together in a big way.
This year there is a lot to celebrate for equality. With the repeal of DOMA and subsequent changes in law and business practice, equality for everyone seems more in reach than ever before.
For a list of events during Come out with Pride, visit Bungalower's Event Calendar or visit the official Come out with Pride site.
In celebration of equality, uOwn is putting this express your individuality banner on its new website and Facebook Page.

This website foundation is scalable, so as new agents join and new branches open, this website can accommodate the growth of the company while keeping pace with technology standards.” – Sean Frank, Broker/OwnerMobile browsing is capturing more market share every month.
