Orange County Commissioners move forward in wake of county judge resignation


    A few days after Orange County Judge Dean Crooks announced his resignation, Orange County leaders are continuing their efforts in bringing businesses and major industries into the area.

    Crooks announced his resignation Wednesday following criticism made by him about tax abatements.

    Commissioner John Gothia says he knows Crooks was looking out for what was best for the county, but businesses owners and constituents saw it in another way.

    "The more jobs we can put here, the more we can create here the more homes that are built, that's what helps our tax base," says Gothia. "That's what we have to do and part of that is an incentive you have to offer but it's also the peoples attitude."
