- Please vote for Atwell and Dorfman. Both are level headed and want good growth and economic advancement for Sarasota. Chapman will leave us in the gutter while the rest of Florida flourishes!
- I agree. Dorfman and Atwell offer the better choice for well-reasoned, progressive growth and downtown revitalization.
- Forget right winger Dorfman. Elect a progressive if you want good government and smart growth. Chapman can be trusted.
