Sarasota’s New Mayor!

He seems like a bright, sincere, informed, and concerned city commissioner and I’ve got a feeling he’ll rock as Mayor. I know some of the stuff is just ceremonial, but I think someone like Kelly will be good for the city, its image, and its sense of well-being.

I was fortunate enough to have Kelly introduce me at my first book reading ever — when my book Sideways in Sarasota came out in 2008, he made the introduction to my reading event at Sarasota News & Books. I think he was Vice-Mayor back then … guess I’ll have to hurry up on my next book and hopefully have the same honor again while he’s Mayor … .

Good luck, Mr. Mayor!
