Gary W. Cain

As a proud Boys & Girls Clubs alumnus and motivated president & chief professional officer of Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida for over 18 years, Gary Cain knows the benefits of a Club firsthand. Gary’s involvement with Boys & Girls Clubs began at the impressionable age of 11 at his childhood Club in Panama City, Florida. Gary credits his Boys & Girls Club experience as having a profound impact on his life from the social, educational and emotional standpoints. His deep involvement with Boys & Girls Clubs as a child diverted him from negative activities and influences associated with growing up in an impoverished background as well as motivated him to achieve more than what he was presented with in life.

“In many ways, the wheels were coming off in my family,” Cain says. “My Boys & Girls Club treated me as an individual, taught me about values and sheltered me from the storm that was ongoing in my family.”
It is no wonder why Gary Cain is so passionate about his work and the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.

Thanks to Boys & Girls Clubs, Gary grew into a driven individual and professional. Gary holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Tusculum College and a Master of Business Administration Degree from Rollins College. He has also made significant contributions to elevating the overall image and awareness of Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida in the areas of financial stewardship and board member development.

Gary began his Boys & Girls Club professional career in Bristol, Virginia, where he served as that organization’s first full-time program director. Before moving to Orlando, Gary served as the assistant regional director of Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Pacific Region where he had primary responsibility for providing consultative services to existing Boys & Girls Clubs. In his role as assistant regional director, Gary directly established 23 new Boys & Girls Clubs that now serve thousands of children in need.

Andrew L. Cameron

I am a candidate for Orange County Judge because I believe that county court judges are the gatekeepers to the judicial system and to the promise of fairness and justice within it. The Orange County judicial system resolves hundreds of thousands of disputes annually, the vast majority of these within the county court. That is why county court is the “people’s court” and is for many the court of first and last resort. The citizens of Orange county depend on their county court judges to be fair, intelligent and efficient, and to resolve disputes that they cannot negotiate on their own. Our community is entitled to select their judges, and to expect them to be experienced, patient and courteous. For 26 years, my diverse criminal and civil law practice has rewarded me with extensive experience in the law and its process, and the satisfaction of advocating on behalf of citizens throughout Florida. From this diverse legal experience I will bring to the court a valuable new perspective for the benefit of the people of Orange County.
