ABOUT DIANE TRAVIS
Dear Clermont Voter,
I want to introduce myself to you and ask for your vote for Mayor, which is City Council Seat 3.
I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, and later lived in Texas and Minnesota before moving to Windermere in 1987. I then discovered Clermont, fell in love with the city, and its beautiful lakes and hills, and moved here in 1989.
I have a bachelor's degree from Governor’s State University. I managed and owned my own telecommunications consulting company. I started a career in real estate and now own my own real estate company, Travis Realty Group. I am a past board member and treasurer for USATriathlon, and I was named Volunteer of the Year for the Orlando Economic Development Commission. I have served as president of my homeowners association.
In 2014, I was elected to the Clermont City Council where I have served for the past six years. During that time, I'm proud to support a host of accomplishments that include a new police station, updated fire-safety equipment, the award-winning Victory Pointe Park, the new Kehlor Building for seniors and a new, safer boat ramp -- and much more. I currently serve on Lake County's Tourism Development Council and the Lake Apopka Natural Gas District Board of Directors and formerly served on the Lake-Sumter Metropolitan Planning Organization's board.
I want to continue seeing our Master Plan vision realized by committing my experience and passion to the position of Mayor and by being a Champion for Clermont taxpayers. I want to bring my knowledge as a world champion athlete to the City and be the voice for health and wellness initiatives throughout our community. I am dedicated to protecting our natural resources. We must preserve the beauty of our lakes and hills.
I also want to be a champion for promoting Downtown Clermont. Great cities have great downtowns. I want to continue to see our Master Plan vision realized, especially as we prepare to be a gateway city for the Coast-to-Coast Connector trail.
As a Realtor, I get to hear what people are looking for when they relocate to our area. I get to hear what employers are seeking when they consider moving their business here to our community. I believe I am the best qualified candidate.
Thank you to the voters who supported me in the primary election, giving me the largest number of votes for mayor. I would be honored to have your vote in the general election on November 3, 2020.
I am honored to be endorsed by the following organizations:
Diane with her dogs, Riley and Star, at Waterfront Park where she leads the annual Ride of Silence. Diane is known statewide as an advocate for bicycle safety.
Diane and her fellow Council members at the grand opening of the new boat ramp.
Diane is a national and world champion duathlete -- an endurance competition that requires competitors to run, cycle and run again.
