Take Back Manatee County

{from corrupt developers and special interests}

36,000 signatures will legally compel commissioners to appoint a charter committee. The committee will create a charter government plan for voter approval.

What does charter government mean for you? Here arejust four great reasons for charter government;
1. More citizen control, less government control of issues important to us.
2. Campaign finance reform will limit contributions by developers or other special interests to candidates. Manatee County Commissioners and other elected officials will work for the people, not rich, special interests. The playing field thus leveled will attract new candidates.
3. All amendments to the comprehensive plan could go to a referendum vote. This means no more carte de blanche land use changes for developers.
4. Term Limits; prevents officials from becoming 'entrenched' with special interests.

ONLY REGISTERED MANATEE VOTERS MAY SIGN THIS PETITION

However, anyone can help share the petition, collect signatures, or contribute.

Please help secure a bright future for everyone, especially our kids. We need your help.

MAKE MANATEE GREAT AGAIN!
