Sarasota News Leader December 28, 2012 Page 16 FEB. 23 The Florida Supreme Court announces it will hear oral arguments on April 10 in county commission term limits cases from Sarasota and Broward counties. Sarasota attorney Andrea Mogensen, representing 16 plaintiffs who filed suit against Sarasota County over term limits in November 2011, and David Persson, the Longboat Key town attorney who is representing the county, both are preparing to appear before the court in Tallahassee. The fate of Commissioner Jon Thaxton���s political career could be determined by the court���s ruling. Thaxton, who is serving his third term on the board, is seeking a fourth one. If the high court rules term limits are constitutional in counties whose charters call for them, Thaxton would be prevented from seeking another term. Two developers are working with City of Sarasota staff regarding separate proposals for a hotel on a downtown parcel next to the Palm Avenue parking garage: Jim Bridges of Jebco Ventures, based in Atlanta; and Angus Rogers of Floridays Development Co., based in Sarasota. % Commissioner Jon Thaxton/Photo by Norman Schimmel ���The best prescription is knowledge.��� ��� Dr. C.
