Manatee County has a County Administrator who was endorsed for the job by my opponent. We have a sitting at-large Commissioner with 30 years of local government experience, including 14 years on the BOCC.
This morning we had our Tiger Bay debate.
A question was asked about why we are the better candidate for the County Commission position. I believe this question perfectly sums up this election.
When I’m elected to the Board, I will bring fresh ideas, a new voice and a background and skill set that will be lacking on, and uniquely beneficial to, the BOCC.
If my opponent gets elected, he will be rendered redundant day one. Even he, a supposed fiscal conservative, can agree that it’s not the best use of our taxpayer’s dollars to pay for a back-up Cheri Coryea and a back-up Carol Whitmore.
Thanks, but Manatee County is all set in those areas.
