I have been a resident since 1953. I am a business owner, and have raised three children on this beautiful island. Just as I do every election, I have been reading your articles about the County Commissioners in your newspaper.

“Optics” is the new catch phrase in the media. Unintentional visual messages are as important as written or spoken content. “Optics” can easily compromise any intended message.

We endorse Jeff Atwater for reelection as CFO of Florida. The former Florida Rep. and State Senate President, who won the office when Alex Sink left to run for Governor in 2010, took over a successful operation and raised the bar on fighting fraud in a state that has for too long been seen as a soft target in that criminal arena.

Two weekends ago, I attended the Manatee School District's Career and Technical Student Organization rally at Braden River High School.
