Local Government Manatee County Commission Agenda Results: August 8, 2012


BRADENTON --  At the BOCC Meeting Tuesday, Port Director Carlos Buqueras was praised for exceeding expectations in his first official evaluation. His broad-based perspective and multi-lingual talents are working out well for putting Florida's International Gateway on the map. During Citizen Comments, two 6th graders from Rubonia gave a presentation on their vision of Lincoln Elementary that would have made the most seasoned urban planner green with envy.

CITIZEN COMMENTS (Consideration for Future Agenda) -- 6th graders, Tyreke Lee, his twin brother Tyrell, their uncle, Moody Johnson and the boys' grandfather, Reverend W.D. Sims, all showed up Tuesday at the BOCC meeting to give us a civics lesson. During Citizen's Comments, Tyreke took over the podium with an eloquent demeanor and an articulate voice of profound clarity. "I want to see some changes," he said, and then pulled out a very defined sketch of the property at the Rubonia Civic Center, placed it on the overview, and described his request. With all of the precision of a boardroom presentation, Tyreke and Tyrell amazed the commission and audience alike. (More on this story to follow).
