First and foremost, our environment needs to be protected, from our uplands that are vital to providing for our diverse wildlife and plant ecosystems to our Gulf waters.
There needs to be at least one voice on the dais who will advocate and speak out for our environment. Our quality of life and the reasons why we chose to live here needs to be protected.
Our elected officials need to serve the people, ALL the people. This can only begin to happen if our representative base, the Board of Sarasota County Commissioners, becomes more diversified. I will be the voice of environmental stewardship in all discussions that take place on the dais.
