- CHANGE! CHANGE! CHANGE! Many of the residents here are quite happy and content with the way Longboat is right now. Let's keep Longboat, Longboat! That's why we purchased our home here to begin with.
- Congratulations Mayor Spoll and Vice Mayor Jim Brown!
Hopefully we will continue on this path of change for Longboat Key. Both the business owners and many younger people on this island will continue to gather forces and effect even more change for our future.... Change is afoot, but today we pause and celebrate your successes on jobs well done!
