THE NEW "STOP SARASOTA WASTE NOW"-CAMPAIGN IS CONDEMNING WHAT IT CALLS "A BLATANT LACK OF TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY" BY THE "SARASOTA COUNTY PUBLIC HOSPITAL DISTRICT"--AND ITS BENEFACTOR, "SARASOTA MEMORIAL HOSPITAL"TARREN BRAGDON IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE "FOUNDATION FOR GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY"--WHICH IS SUPPORTING THE CAMPAIGN...

(BRAGDON):
"
THE 'PUBLIC HOSPITAL DISTRICT' HAS ABUSED ITS TAXING-AUTHORITY OVER COUNTY-RESIDENTS FOR FAR TOO LONG.  WE EXPECT OUR GOVERNMENT-OFFICIALS--BOTH ELECTED AND APPOINTED--TO BE RESPONSIBLE STEWARDS OF TAXPAYER-MONEY.  BUT, FROM 1998 TO 2009, TAX-RATES NEARLY QUADRUPLED--WITH TAX-COLLECTIONS INCREASING FROM JUST UNDER FIVE-MILLION DOLLARS, TO ALMOST 60-MILLION DOLLARS, A YEAR--ALL WITH LITTLE OVERSIGHT OR ACCOUNTABILITY.  WE URGE THE PUBLIC TO SIGN OUR PETITION, AND JOIN OUR FIGHT--TO STOP THIS SENSELESS ABUSE OF TAXPAYER-DOLLARS."

(CLOSE):
THE CAMPAIGN HAS MORE INFORMATION--AND AN ONLINE PETITION--AT "STOP-SARASOTA-WASTE-NOW"-DOT-COM.
