- I would rather have openly known Republicans like Joe Gruters, Jesse Biter and Christian Ziegler supporting my candidate, Richard Dorfman. Waechter, Robinson and Barbetta also support Richard and that's OK, too. Susan Chapman is the Elitist Candidate. Vote for real growth. Vote for Dorfman.
- Dorfman understands that a vibrant Sarasota with greater economic opportunity and lower taxes requires a rejection of the false choice between Development and Neighborhoods espoused by one of the other candidates in the runoff election, Susan Chapman. He is an advocate of encouraging new people, activities and businesses to come to Sarasota, and realizes that the choice for meeting $30 million in unfunded pension plans is either to double taxes on every city resident, or broaden the tax base by allowing for greater density and more business development. He knows that higher taxes lead to a lower standard of living, so his choice is to increase the vitality and viability of Sarasota through an influx of new residents and businesses. It's clear to me that the City Commission best suited for solving Sarasota's fiscal shortcomings and setting the stage for future growth and economic prosperity will include both Richard Dorfman and Suzanne Atwell.
