Hartmann speaks for the first 44-minutes of this event, touching on such issues as his previous leadership experiences in county and municipal government, the new normal of living with staff reductions, the county’s property tax values, economic development, place making, SunRail, the environment and recreation trails, roads and utilities, Seminole County public schools, public safety, and social services.

His remarks are followed by 9-minutes of answers to 5 questions you’ll hear asked of him by league members on issues of homelessness, military veterans, on the job surprises he has encountered, the county’s water supply, and the nuance of county and city governments working together toward a common goal.
