Siesta Key Group Supports Single Member Districts
On December 7, the Board of County Commissioners unanimously voted to place a Single-member district referendum on the ballot again during the March 2022 special election. In 2018, sixty-percent of voters chose single-member districts, and a recent Sarasota County conducted survey reaffirmed that choice. At the BCC meeting, 25 of 26 citizens who addressed the Board supported single-member districts and spoke against holding another referendum to try to overturn them. This is the editorial the Sarasota Herald-Tribune published before the BCC meeting that calls for maintaining the “Single Member Districts”. The Board of the SKCC agrees with this position on this issue re our Siesta Key

[Editor's note: To support Single Member Districts, Vote NO on March 8 - the developer-driven Board of County Commissioners wants you to vote Yes, which would repeal SMDs.]
