Save Siesta Key asks supporters to send letters to their state legislators

November 26, 2021 —
Save Siesta Key (SSK) asks everyone to call or email the local state legislative delegation to show support for getting Siesta Key incorporation on the ballot.    Click here for delegation contact information and SSK’s latest update.
On Sept 30th, SSK  presented their case to the local delegation; the deadline for their vote to take the local bill to Tallahassee is December 12th.  You can view the SSK presentation here.
Senator Joe Gruters and Representative Fiona McFarland are planning a Town Hall meeting to better understand how the community feels about voting on incorporation.   It will be critical that the community come out in support of the right to vote.  The date is TBD but SSK intends to keep everyone informed as details are available.  To stay updated, go to the SSK website at savesiestakey.org/stay-informed.
SSK is collecting petitions until December 12; if you have not submitted one visit savesiestakey.org/petition, print, and drop in boxes located at both Davidson Drugs stores. Now that snow birds are returning, SSK needs volunteers to help collect petitions from condominiums. Contact SSK if you can help.
