Local reporting from Anna Maria Island and Bradenton Beach, then Veterans for Common Sense April 27 on Peace & Justice at 9am.

Written by on Tuesday, April 26, 2022

On April 27 at 9am on the Peace & Justice Report we’ll celebrate local reporting by talking to Bob’s good friend, Joe Hendrix. Joe writes for the Anna Maria Island Sun and also has his own website, the Sunshine Gazette. See his recent stories here

We’ll talk about things like

  • Mote Marine on City Pier – delayed until March 2023
  • Golf carts on public streets – slowing traffic, pissing people off. Cities taking various approaches, Bradenton Beach doing nothing.
  • Continued proliferation of vacation rentals and vacationers
  • Traffic/congestion
  • Failed water taxi from Bradenton to AMI – county got no proposals from potential providers
  • Aqua mangrove trimming investigation
  • Term limits, shrinking pool of commission candidates. Bradenton Beach charter review committee is currently discussing whether to put term limits on ballots again
  • Beach access and parking
  • Differences in the three Island cities
  • Far right Manatee County Commission
  • Life as a newspaper reporter
  • His new 70s rock band

Later in the program our friend Gene Jones from the Florida Veterans for Common Sense will call in. Gene will talk about his latest piece in the Common Sense News.

Finally, we’ll celebrate the final hours of the Giving Challenge. Until Wednesday at noon your contribution of $25-$100 will be doubled! Click HERE before noon on July 27 and please mention Peace & Justice when you donate!
