ORANGE COUNTY CLERK OF COURTS TIFFANY MOORE RUSSELL: FREE LEGAL FORUM AND PASSPORT CAMPAIGN

Virtual Meeting – March 25, 2021




Orange County Clerk of Courts Tiffany Moore Russell is a native of Orlando, Florida. She received a BA in Political Science from the University of South Florida and a Juris Doctorate from Florida State University College of Law.

Elected to the Orange County Commission to represent District 6 in November of 2006, Clerk Russell made history by becoming the youngest County Commissioner ever elected to serve on the Orange County Commission. Clerk Russell served two terms on the County Commission (2006-2014). Clerk Russell again made history in 2014 as the first African-American female Clerk elected in Florida and the first African American Clerk in Orange County.

As Commissioner, and now as a Constitutional Officer, Clerk Russell has a strong commitment to her community. Trained as an attorney, she understands that access to the justice system is crucial, especially for those in the community who are economically challenged. That understanding led Clerk Russell to create the Lydia Gardner Self Help Center. Named in honor of a former Orange County Clerk, the center is the first of its kind in Orange County and provides low cost legal assistance in the areas of family law, residential evictions and small claims to those who are not represented by an attorney.

Continuing her focus on the citizens of Orange County, Clerk Russell sits on both the Domestic Violence Commission and the Domestic Violence Taskforce, working to identify trends and reduce the incidence of domestic violence in the community. She is also a long-time supporter
