County Commissioner Nora Patterson today announced that she’ll run for re-election.
Patterson represents District 4, which runs from the waterfront to Interstate 75 between Bee Ridge Road and Clark Road and includes areas such as Siesta Key and Gulf Gate.
She was first elected in 1998 and has twice been re-elected.
Patterson said the county’s focus during the next four years should be to come out of the recession with a more diverse economic and tax base.
