Save the Date, March 24, 2015, 1:30 PM, downtown SRQ - 1660 Ringling Boulevard, Sarasota, FL

On Tuesday, March 24th, 2015, at 1:30 p.m. in downtown Sarasota, 1660 Ringling Boulevard, Sarasota, FL, a diverse and non-partisan group of Sarasota taxpayers will shine a bright spotlight on the conflicts of interest and lack of integrity plaguing Sarasota County government.

This community-powered "bright light" will focus first on a Sarasota County Commissioner who is now simultaneously employed as the paid executive director of an influential local lobbying organization.

As one Sarasota County Commissioner and another former County Commissioner recently noted, the job of commissioner is far more than a full-time job, one saying it demands 60-80 hours/week.

We believe it is untenable and unseemly for a commissioner to be serving “two masters” in this brazen arrangement, and we also ask, which of the two masters is getting short shrift?

If you share our incredulity at this and other local examples of the misbehavior and blatant conflicts of interest that seem to be increasingly on display in our county government, then on March 24th, we will need an hour or two of your valuable time, in order that you can add your voice to our clarion call, when we will demand INTEGRITY in our county government!

Please plan to join us on March 24th, at 1:30 p.m., at a place to be announced, when we will debut our challenge to the developer-coddling politicians and the cynicism and disillusionment they foster in our community!

On this day, we will demand genuine "integrity" from our elected officials as well as the other public servants and county staff who work on our behalf. Please stay tuned for further information, which will be shared in the weeks ahead!

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Kind regards,
Your energized and motivated neighbors and friends.

 Please RSVP to our Facebook Event Page address or Sarasota Integrity 2016 and thank you in advance for your civic participation!
