County Commission candidate Shannon Snyder sat down with The Sarasota News Leader at his home near Arlington Park this week to talk about his campaign. A lifelong county resident and a third-gener- ation Sarasotan, Snyder grew up across the street from where he lives. Snyder retired after serving for 25 years with the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office. He was elected to the City Commission in 2011. In 2013, he was selected by the commission to serve as mayor. The Sarasota News Leader: What do you think will be the single biggest issue the County Commission will have to deal with after the election? Shannon Snyder: It always starts with the budget. Everything starts with the budget; no matter what you want to do, it always starts with the budget. I think probably infrastruc- ture is going to be the main thing. How are we going to pay for all the necessary improve- ments — to handle the growth and also to handle replacement and repair of already existing infrastructure? My experience on the Shannon Snyder sits at the City Commission dais as mayor in 2013.
