Mission Statement

Statement of Purpose

We, the OCTA, believe government exists to provide basic services at a reasonable cost to the residents of the community. We believe that government should be accountable to the tax payer for the level of service provided, the way it provides these services and for the cost of these services. The OCTA will assist both the taxpayer and the government entity to first: identify problems, second come up with solutions for problems, and finally, will provide a flow of information to and from the taxpayer to ensure these solutions are pursued and the accountability maintained.

Applicants for Osceola County Attorney Narrowed Down to These Three Attorneys

See attached applications below. For professional courtesy we blocked out the past salaries for two of the applicants. Applicant Scott Johnson failed to disclose his past salaries. The salaries appeared to demonstrate the glut of law school graduates across the land and that we'd be offering a significant pay raise for the two who filled out the entire application.
