"I don't know if that's going to mean anything to them," Nowak tells The Sarasota News Leader, but since her presentation she has booked one-on-one meetings with County Commission Vice Chairwoman Christine Robinson and Chairman Charles Hines, two commissioners who have not yet voiced sup- port for an ordinance. Commissioner Carolyn Mason has so far been the only vocal propo- nent on the board. Nowak won't be able to get the issue on the county's ballot this year, but she's planning a campaign to present it to voters as soon as possible after that. Sarasota Pride Fest is scheduled for Oct. 18, and Nowak will attempt a major signature push around that event if the commission remains disinterested. She's also launched an online petition to comple- ment the paper version. % A petition drive has been launched online to urge the Sarasota County Commission to approve a human rights ordinance.
