Comments: Why are these meetings being held in the morning? 10am? Really? Most folks are at work! Just another way for the Commission to continue to disrespect the voters! Why aren't you holding these meetings at 6 or 7pm Commissioners? what are you afraid of?

Subject: amazing help from managers at white sands beach resort florida
Comments: My husband had a heart attack whilst we were on holiday from England on the 17th October 2014.
He was rushed into Blake memorial Bradenton. The amazing surgeon Mr Alesnic performed a triple heart bye pass and thank the Lord he is recovering well on this beautiful island which we have been visiting for the past 20 years.
I cannot think how we would have coped without the help and support of two amazing brothers Ken and Jeff Gerry. They had everything I would need to nurse my husband back to good health. Blood pressure monitor, thermometer, bathroom scales, raiser for toilet and chair for the bath to shower my husband in place for when we returned from Blake medical Centre
Add to this the times they have run us to hospital and doctors surgery appointments(45 min run to near i75)as I do not drive here.They are truly wonderful young men and a great credit to the resort of Anna Maria Island. Such kindness at such a stressful lonely moment leaves me speechless.
Our grateful thanks go to these two wonderful young men, and the wonderful Dr Alesnik at Blake Hospital.
Thank you Ken and Jeff Gerry, The White Sands Beach Resort. Holmes beach Florida.
May God Bless you both.
Shelley and Roy Christopher. England.

Subject: Bridge from Long Boat
Comments: I've been coming down here to Anna Maria for 35 years and I've ALWAYS thought Long Boat should have a bridge for evacuation. What are they thinking?! They only have one bridge and it is at the most southern end of the island. If I were people in Bradenton Beach I would be furious to have to go to Manatee bridge so Long Boat could use their bridge in case of evaculation!
