Our first guest this Wednesday, October 14 at 9am, was a previous guest, Carl Dix. Carl is a founding member, and a representative, of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.

Carl writes:

We’re in an extremely dangerous and momentous period – and facing a rolling fascist coup with one Trump assault after another (e.g., Barr announced the DOJ will be actively interfering in the election — on Trump’s behalf.

I’m working with RefuseFascism.org to stop this nightmare before it’s too late – protesting everyday – demanding TRUMP Pence out now, and speaking out on breaking developments @Carl_Dix on Twitter.

Our second guest was Tony Dunbar, a candidate for the Sarasota Charter Review Board, District 5. We talked about what the board does and also about an important meeting Wednesday evening October 14 at 6pm at the County Administration Center at 1660 Ringling Blvd. The agenda for that meeting is HERE. In it you’ll find a proposal to amend Section 7.1 of the county charter which would make amending the charter by citizens much harder.

By the way, here’s a great link to a series of two or three minute video segments of seventeen recommended candidates from Citizens for District PowerIt includes most of the candidates for the Charter Review Board. Just click this:

The Charter Review Board is an elected body of 10 members, two members from each of the five county commission districts, who serve staggered terms of four years. The Charter Review Board reviews and proposes changes to the Sarasota County Charter which are submitted to referendum in accordance with the provisions of Article VI of the Charter. An affirmative vote of two-thirds of the Charter Review Board members is required to submit amendments to referendum.

Members are elected countywide by the voters of Sarasota County at the General Election and take office on the second Tuesday following the General Election. They serve without compensation.
