While we acknowledge that this year's gubernatorial election is indeed consequential, we cannot in good conscience recommend any of the candidates as being best qualified.

Without question, there is no member of the state cabinet who gives us as much pause as incumbent AG Pam Bondi, who we feel has politicized an important statewide position in order to draw attention to herself and serve her own political ambitions with little regard for the constituents in her state.

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. Over a thousand kids from middle schools and high schools in the district packed the auditorium to kick off another exciting year in which some of the amazing programs will undoubtedly deliver more national acclaim to the district.

Manatee County Commissioner Carol Whitmore has lost all respect for the truth. If she had checked, she would have known that her voting accusations were patently false. Instead, she glommed on to Dr. Terri Wonder's re registration to promulgate libel and slander. Tuesday, in response to public comments of my wife, she denied being part of the group pushing a sales tax increase. Her statement was false.

Is the Southwest Florida Water Management District skewed against defending and protecting proper water usage? How silenced is the lone voice that shares the table in the sea of Men. None of whom have any qualifications that justify even being seated at the table in a position to make qualified judgments on water usage or water quality. One lone voice is qualified. I am sure that Florida has many well qualified Biologists, Hydrologist, Ecologist, and yes even Engineers to sit on the Board, but where are they?

On Friday, the weekly school district “scandal” broke over long-sought emails between school board chair Julie Aranibar and one of her supporters, long-time school district volunteer and education advocate Dr. Richard Conard. Once the various emails from various accounts were tracked down, they seemed to indicate something very unlikely in the political realm had occured – everything happened the way it should have.

Surely, every refuge has its price. But don't tell that to the Manatee County Commission. They believe the county's snowballing development is a blessing, that their pedal to the metal concrete expansion is going to take the county to never-ending prosperity. But there's trouble here in paradise, as the idolized development commissioners so expeditiously embrace seems certain to take the county to its knees.

One must wonder if the “90% or greater” Save Rate of animals taken into custody at Manatee County Animal Services (MCAS) is trustworthy. One would have to say “yes” given the figure has been stated time and time again in MCAS Advisory Board Meetings, Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) meetings, and press conferences. The embattled Commissioner Carol Whitmore, up for re-election this year, remains silent regarding the veracity of “90%,” which begs the question, “Does she even care?”

Manatee County is clearly a GOP stronghold. Registered Republican voters outnumber Democrats by more than 22,000. But voters who routinely check "R" right down the ballot without giving it much more thought should take a closer look. In Manatee, the actual performance of county commissioners can more easily be divided among those who are in favor of well-planned, smart growth and responsible use of natural resources, and those who consistently favor developers seeking to build at all costs and phosphate mining interests who want to exploit our environment for financial gain. When it comes to those key issues, the D and the R often tell us very little.
