Sarasota County will create a Budget Oversight Committee that will assist in budget-related issues.

The committee will be made up of prominent citizens who will review the county’s 2010 budget and make suggestions and criticisms.

Each county commissioner nominated at least one citizen to appoint to the board. The list includes:

Robert L. Anderson, former county commissioner
Kelly Caldwell, CEO and president of Caldwell Trust Co.
Lisa Carlton, former Florida senator
Harrison Fox, former staff member for U.S. House Budget Committee and U.S. Senate Finance Committee
Robert Long, former Milwaukee Public Schools assistant superintendent
Eric Resker, financial planner for AIMCO
John Saputo, owner of Gold Coast Eagle Distributing
Mary Anne Servian, former Sarasota mayor
Richard Singer, retired economist
Joseph Welch, builder

Commission Chairman Jon Thaxton came up with the idea to create the committee.

“We get criticism that we’re wasteful,” Thaxton said. “So, I thought those in the private industry might be able to see things in the budget that we didn’t. This is an all-star cast.”
