The Sarasota Herald Tribune broke the news of my intentions on Christmas eve. Jeremy Wallace's column "Democrats dreaming of Sarasota County win" focused on three main themes: my potential to break an unbroken streak of Republican County Commissioners that stretches back to 1970, the fact that I am no stranger to county politics, and a very truncated summary of my record of service to the community.
Jeremy also covered my possible run in his December 18th blog: Democrat considers county commission run.
Pelican Press reporter Rick Barry also broke the story Jono Miller will run for County Commission a few days earlier. His story also covered the democratic angle, mentioned that I was "a leader in civic affairs for three decades" and pointed out my concern about the state of the local economy.
