CityPAC is a nonpartisan political committee formed to:
Identify and support candidates for the public office of Sarasota City Commissioner who will seek to implement resident-friendly positions on issues relevant to a livable city.
Advocate for issues of importance to residents.
Inform voters about the issues and candidates who are resident-friendly.
Everyone who resides in Sarasota, appreciates our dynamic and walkable City, and wants a city that is a safe and pleasant destination for living, shopping, dining, entertainment, leisure, culture, and more.
Who Should Care
People are the lifeblood of any city, and the building blocks of community and neighborhoods. The growing City of Sarasota residential community has yet to achieve representation appropriate for its contributions to the local economy.
Given the residential building boom, and the impacts of growth, there is an increasing need for the city of Sarasota to be livable, vibrant, and sustainable.
CityPAC seeks to help identify and support city commissioners who listen to residents, respect their input, and prioritize the needs of those who call Sarasota "home".
