Prior to this I was elected to the Charter Review Board a well as served on the Planning Commission for 5 years. I am a 28-year small business owner of a Construction Company.
I have lived in District 4 for 60 years and live less then 5 minutes from where I grew up and as you can imagine I have seen a dramatic change in Sarasota. In the last 15 years the greatest changes have occurred. After term limits were put in place the reins on growth have really been loosened. Areas east of 175 are now all under current construction or pending construction pressure. The effects of all of this is a county that is out of control.
