All candidates who qualified to run for county commission have been invited by CONA to participate in a candidate forum scheduled for their race. The forums are free and open to the public.
- The forum for district two candidates for county commission will be held by CONA on July 9, 2018.
- The forum for district four candidates for county commission will be held by CONA on August 13, 2018.
The location for both forums is the Sarasota Garden Club at 1131 Boulevard of the Arts in Sarasota, which is at the intersection of Tamiami Trail, south of the Municipal Auditorium. Parking and the entrance are reached from Van Wezel Way. A social at 6:30 p.m. precedes the forum that begins at 7:00 p.m.
Our forums are open to the public and free. Details and more information are posted to the web site,www.conasarasota.org and will be distributed in regularly scheduled meeting announcements.
Qualified candidates for any scheduled local race and those proposing ballot initiatives are welcome to attend the social before each of the forums in order to make contact with voters and to distribute literature and yard signs -- even if not scheduled as a member of the panel for that forum.
