Campaign Message:
The learning curve to fulfill the duties of the Sarasota County Charter Review Board is a steep one. Participation on the board requires patience, integrity and a receptive attitude towards the constituents we represent. Owning a small business for 33 years, interacting and tending to the needs of patients, having served the last 4 years on the Charter Review Board and 12 years on the Sarasota County Hospital Board, I have garnered the experience and preparation to provide the constituents of Sarasota County with an intuitive, sensible, thoughtful, fair and intelligent approach to all that is brought to the Charter Review Board. Although I see the role of Charter Review Board as a protector of the charter, I believe in freedom of speech and free exchange of ideas. I would be honored to serve you and need your vote. Please vote for Donna Barcomb, Charter Review Board, District 2.
