11. Job Watch
I believe the most important story to cover in our current economic situation is the job market. With numerous huge construction projects — such as The Proscenium and Benderson’s hotel on Main and Orange — possibly in the pipe for Sarasota, the city needs to make sure these jobs are going to Sarasota residents who are having trouble finding work. I plan to talk with the people involved in hiring for these projects to make sure these new jobs pump money back into our community.
