With the presidential election behind us and the Florida gubernatorial election still ahead, Sarasota County is turning its attention to the City Commission race. This year there are two At-Large seats up for election on March 12th. At-large seats represent the whole city and are voted on by all registered voters in the city. The two At-Large seats are currently held by Mayor Suzanne Atwell and Commissioner Terry Turner. Terry is not seeking re-election, but Democrat Suzanne Atwell is.
There are a total of six candidates running for these two seats. Three of them are Democrats and will be featured at our March 9th luncheon at the Sarasota Yacht Club. Please join us as we welcome incumbent Mayor Suzanne Atwell, along with Susan Chapman, and Linda Holland.
The program will be moderated by WSRQ Talk Radio’s Susan Nilon, who has been closely following the race on her radio show and has moderated other events with the candidates. Please note that this month’s luncheon will be held at the Sarasota Yacht Club.
