Another candidate announced his intent to run for the County Commission seat that represents Siesta Key.

Native Sarasotan Jordan Letschert filed his intent to run last week for the District 4 seat. Letschert, 35, is a former police officer and entrepreneur who is running as “a moderate Democrat,” according to a release from the candidate.

“His vision is clear: secure our schools for our children, protect our environment, and grow our responsibility,” the release stated.

Letschert promised to donate half of his $86,000 commissioner salary to fund an additional school resource officer.

He joins Democrat Wesley Beggs, Republican Lourdes Ramirez and incumbent Al Maio in the race for the District 4 commission seat.

In District 2, current Paul Caragiulo is not running for re-election. Republican Christian Ziegler and Democrat Ruta Jouniari filed their intent to run. Alexandra Coe did as well, but said in an email she may decide not to run.
