The County Commissioners will hold a  Public Hearing on Tuesday December 7th  when they will choose wording for a Single Member Districts REPEAL AMENDMENT and then plan to place it on the March 8, 2022 1-mil, School referendum ballot. The Public Hearing is the LAST agenda item in the afternoon session. The County Commissioners denied our request to put this Public Hearing at the start of the afternoon session. It would be safe to arrive by 3:30 pm in order to participate in the Hearing.

Sarasota County Commissioners are hell-bent on overturning Single Member Districts for electing County Commissioners, so they can stay in power. 98% of all county voters live in a precinct that voted for single-member districts. 60% of voters of all political parties passed Single Member Districts in 2018, including 62% in North Port, 61% in Sarasota, 62% in Venice, and 57% in Longboat Key.

WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?  Who represents you on the County Commission is important because the commissioners have the power to decide growth policy, approve new development, and CHOOSE WHO PAYS for the infrastructure needed to support that growth.
