Supporting the City and innovating
Economic Invigoration Plan
By offering business incentives and streamlining the start-up process, the City will experience an increase in revenue as business grows.
Education and workforce development
Educating our students and providing an opportunity to gain real-world experience will lead to a better prepared and well trained workforce.
I will promote local public safety and support our Orange's First Responders in an effort to maintain our low crime rates and to help keep our community safe.
I believe in responsible management of our City's financial resources. I take my fiduciary responsibility of your tax dollars seriously. By limiting, and evaluating our spending we can continue to have a financially healthy community.
Responsiveness of the city leaders to the citizens is a responsibility I take seriously. It is important that we respond quickly to citizens who reach out.
All Areas of Orange
It is important that all areas of Orange receive the care and attention they need.
Preserving our Past
I want to encourage preservation and restoration of our past thus creating a strong foundation for our future.
Better efficiency reduces cost and increases productivity. Not all solutions need to take years to approve. With my new perspective, we will create a more efficient city.

Dan Slater, former Orange City Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem endorses John Russo for Mayor of Orange.
“John Russo represents our past, present and future. As a lifelong resident of Orange he is rooted in our community, he currently lives, works and attends college in Orange and he has developed plans for the city of Orange that will enhance future opportunities for businesses and residents alike.”
"John Russo is exactly what we need in the next Mayor of Orange – a candidate with integrity and vision. I want to help him achieve that goal,” Slater said.
Help me to become the next leader of Orange! I’m determined, one that puts his mind to something and will work as hard as I need to, reaching my goals. I am passionate about my city and will put everything I have in becoming the next Mayor of Orange. I feel confident in myself, and in those around me, that I will be able to achieve this goal.

The city of Orange...
My vision for the Office of City Council is to offer fresh perspectives, solutions, ideas, and opportunities. Increasing the responsiveness of city leaders will create better relationships between the citizens and the city. As your next City Councilman I will work with the community to achieve the goals set for the city each year. As we preserve and restore the history of Orange we can better ensure a successful future.
I feel the role of an elected official is to hear the people and help orchestrate a response to their needs. My goal is to work for the citizens, take more time to hear your voices and provide the best customer service possible.
I have no self-interest, other than serving the citizens of Orange.
Tell me about City issues you face daily. I want to hear the voices of the citizens.
