Citizens for District Power started this petition to Sarasota County voters and

Please sign this Petition to tell our news media that we need fair, local reporting and analysis before and after the Aug. 18th Primary.

Early Voting in Sarasota starts Aug. 8, but so far the races are taking place in a news vacuum. Where are the public forums, debates, and analytical articles that would, in a time of Pandemic, enable us to meet the candidates and learn what they stand for?

Sarasota's politicians by and large are groomed by developers and builders. In 2020, new faces from both parties have entered the races, yet no local "mainstream media" organization has met its responsibility to talk with them in depth..

Where are the hard-hitting Independent Press and TV News to grill candidates on the many issues and realities of our community?

Voters are starved for genuine information about people we are asked to vote for. Will our media step up, or is candidate information only provided to developers? 

Urge Sarasota Media to bring local candidates to the table and share their plans for our County.
