On Tuesday, Republican County Commissioner Robin DiSabatino won a landslide victory over Republican challenger Tim Norwood in a two-way open primary. However, the night before she delivered the victory, members of her own party – her own commission no less – were trying to have her kicked out of the local club. The incident, along with the race results, seem to demonstrate how terribly out of touch many Republican politicians seem to be with the voters they supposedly represent.

At this week's port authority meeting, Manatee County Commissioner and Port Authority Board Chair Carol Whitmore sounded the alarm that Port Manatee Director Carlos Buqueras might be hired away, were his already handsome compensation package not soon enhanced. It seems that when it comes to high-level administrators, such talk has become increasingly common even if the stated justifications don't seem to hold water.

As a member of the Citizens Superintendent Selection Committee in early 2013, we were charged with seeking out a superintendent who could straighten out the utter financial mess and operational chaos that the previous administration and school board had created. Taxpayer dollars were being terribly misappropriated and misspent, morale was at an all-time low, the administration was so corrupt that the then superintendent resigned unexpectedly.

As you know I am very concerned about impact fees in Manatee County. Specifically I am concerned that the county is missing revenue collecting opportunities. That failure will have serious future consequences. I do not believe that it is fair to make county taxpayers pay for expansion of infrastructure or services that are necessitated because of new construction. County taxpayers should only be responsible to sustain the present level of services, to maintenance of present infrastructure, and to replace or update old or inefficient infrastructure.

Over the past decade, even small local police departments have begun looking more and more like heavily weaponized military units. The public response to what we are now seeing up close in Ferguson, MO has largely been one of shock, with many Americans quite surprised at what looked more like a scene from our recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, than the streets of a small town in our country's heartland.

Whom would you rather have on the school board in Manatee County – a long-time resident in a certain district or someone who is much better qualified? I personally prefer the latter. Thus, I prefer both Dr. Mary Cantrell and Frank Brunner. That’s why they recently took up residency in their respective districts. They want what’s best for Manatee schools – and they are better educated, have broader and longer experience, and evidence a much better grasp of what needs to be done to make our schools better and more cost-effective.

As I sit down to write this, it’s with mixed feelings but with the compelling commitment that “we the people” need to act and vote on the upcoming school board election with the best information available to us. Our school district and the board that leads it are in the midst of a remarkable turnaround, all of which could change disastrously with the outcome at the polls.

I am pleased to announce that the State of Florida has officially proclaimed August as both Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Month and Light It Up Green Month. Florida joins Pennsylvania and Colorado this year in recognizing all 9 muscular dystrophies and 43 neuro-muscular disorders with their own month. This has never been accomplished before, and I look forward to pushing it to go National in 2015. I also look forward to bigger things as well in 2015. But for now we shall celebrate this wonderful event for all it's worth!
