As a Florida native Demensio grew up in Lake Wales, FL where he learned his values under the watchful gaze of his single mom of five children and Grandmom. Through their care and guidance, he developed life values that have served him well throughout his life... Some of those principles would include:
An educated mind opens doors
Never judge others by the color of their skin or size of their wallet, but by their actions
You can be whatever you can dream, so dream big!

WHY I AM RUNNING:
"I am a Husband, a Father, a Pastor, a God-Parent and a Businessman. I dedicated my life to help, serve, and protect others many years ago. I believe in each person’s Inalienable Rights as an American citizen. These rights are necessary for an individual to have the full opportunity to pursue their life’s dreams and to have a Great Future. It is important that our schools fulfill their purpose in helping families to equip their children to achieve this purpose. As the OCPS Chair I will help get this job done."
