Bradenton resident Terri Wonder has announced she will vie in 2014 for the at-large Manatee County Board of County Commissioners seat currently occupied by Carol Whitmore.

Whitmore has served as the District 6 commissioner since 2008.

Wonder’s platform includes promoting environmental conservation, common-sense economic development and the preservation of unique neighborhoods.

“Manatee County must respect and protect all of its resources – human and natural,” Wonder said. “Some people treat the environment and economy as either-or choices, but that’s a false argument. The environment and economy are both important and they depend on each other. Sarasota Bay is a major economic engine for Manatee County benefiting tourism, fishing, boating, water recreation, local real estate value, and our quality of life.”

Wonder played a key role in rallying opposition for the contentious Long Bar Pointe project.
