Sarasota News Leader March 22, 2013 Page 69 OPINION qualities of Sarasota County for half a century? Thanks to term limits, Jon Thaxton will not be there in County Commission meetings to advocate for not only keeping the plan intact, but strengthening it. Thanks to the deep pockets of the development community, current commissioners may already have made up their minds. But thanks to an organized and growing opposition, the proximal result of the continual infusion of cash into government decision-making might be stymied ��� at least this time ��� and the 2050 Plan truly can protect and preserve Sarasota County for decades to come. % LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Sarasota News Leader welcomes letters to the editor from its readers.
