About Harmon Massey...

After 28 years of military service, living in many different places, my wife Lyn (a native Floridian) and I chose Mount Dora as our retirement home. I highly value the quality of life we enjoy in our neighborhoods, but recent and bold criminal activity in our area underscores the need for strong support for police, fire protection and EMS. Having served nine years as a Florida assistant state attorney/prosecutor, I know firsthand the value of professonal and well-equipped first responders. Making sure our city is safe is a priority!

With the soon to be completed Highway 429 extension into Mount Dora, growth is obviously coming. That growth MUST be carefully managed so it benefits Mount Dora’s citizens. The path charted now, by your elected representatives on City Council, is vital to the future of Mount Dora and maintaining the city as we currently know it.

I have spent a lifetime in service to country and community. My personal motto: never stop serving.Harmon Massey for Mount Dora City Council
