Cutsinger

Commission Chair Ron Cutsinger joined three colleagues in voting to pull the county out of membership in the American Library Association and Florida Library Association.

VENICE — The Sarasota County Commission heard from a few people last month advocating for ending the county library system۷ֱ membership in the American Library Association and Florida Library Association.

The effort led former County Commissioner Shannon Staub, for whom the North Port library is named, to say she hoped to get at least 25 people to attend Tuesday۷ֱ meeting in support of membership, though only two or three of them would be speaking.


Antunes

Cathy Antunes told the County Commission that “history is watching” during public comment about Tuesday about the county۷ֱ memberships in two library associations.

Padmanabhan

Paddy Padmanabhan, president of Literacy Volunteers of South Sarasota County, said his organization depends on its partnership with the county۷ֱ libraries.

Wilson

Larry Wilson said the more than 30 people who asked the County Commission to keep the county in two library associations represented a “small subset” of county voters.
