Vote! School Mil Tax & Single Member Districts

Sarasota County

Every 4 years there is a special election for approving the continuation of the school mil tax. It is not adding anything to your property taxes but allows the continued $1 of $1,000 property tax for schools and teachers.

Also the Sarasota County Commissioners added a referendum to March 8 election to return to countywide election of commissioners. Christian Ziegler is in a democratic majority district and could lose his seat this November. This is an effort to make the election countywide where republicans hold majority of over 5,000 voters. Vote NO. Let’s keep single member districts.
