"I tell my staff, is it a woke corporation? And if it is, I don't return their call."

- Gov. Ron DeSantis

[Politics]  DeSantis Talks Corporate Overreach at Statesman Dinner
Jacob Ogles, jacob.ogles@srqme.com

Gov. Ron DeSantis decried “woke corporations” and promised to fight government vaccine mandates as he accepted the Statesman of the Year award from the Republican Party of Sarasota County.

The Governor decried businesses that last year responded to outcry from progressives over a litany of issues like election reform. He pointed to response to a new law in Georgia intended to strengthen election integrity, but included controversial aspects like voter ID requirements and outlawing handing water to voters waiting in line to vote. “Businesses were going crazy,” he said. “The left went crazy. There was a big online mob and these businesses got scared and they started denouncing the law.”

But he said it was bad business to respond to the law there with moves like Major League Baseball taking the All-Star game out of Atlanta. When Florida passed what DeSantis considered  stricter election integrity bill he said corporations complained far less. “All you're doing is whipping up opposition and Dems going crazy about this,” he said. “I just let it be known to these businesses, I said look, it’s a free country. You’re the big CEO of a big, multinational corporation and you want to come into Florida and call me. I tell my staff, is it a woke corporation? And if it is, I don’t return their call.”

No businesses caught as much of the governor’s ire as social media companies, who he said are restricting free speech in the country. He said many in the public still see censorship as significant only when done by government, but said big tech today acts on the behalf of a regime, noting censorship of COVID-19 information that counters that published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “You cannot have a free society if the bounds of speech that’s acceptable is determined by a handful of oligarchs in Silicon Valley,” he said.

DeSantis also said Florida would resist mandates on businesses from the federal government for employers to impose vaccine mandates. President Biden issued executive orders affecting health care companies accepting Medicaid and companies with 100 employees or more to require employees to be vaccines or to receive regular testing for COVID-19. The result, DeSantis said, is many essential and frontline workers dubbed heroes a year ago will be forced out of work.

The county GOP has awarded the Statesman of the Year award in the past to national figures including former President Donald Trump and high-profile Sens. Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham. The award has also gone to state leaders like Sen. Rick Scott, who was Governor when he accepted the honor. The dinner recognizing the award winner typically sells out and tickets to the event at the Hyatt Regency Sarasota ran out weeks ago. Two private VIP receptions were also well attended.

[Environment]  Conservation Foundation Protects 228 Acres in Old Miakka Preserve

Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast announced the permanent protection of 228-acres in Old Miakka, Sarasota County. This land is a critical link between Sarasota County’s Old Miakka Preserve and Conservation Foundation’s Tatum Sawgrass Scrub Preserve, further linking to over 120,000 acres of conserved land protecting the Myakka River. The land has rich and varied landscape including scrubby flatwoods, mesic hammock, blackwater stream, depression marsh and rangeland, which provide habitat for wildlife including gopher tortoises, turkey, quail and air plant-adorned oaks.

The benefits of protecting this strategically-located land extend well beyond its boundaries and impact our region’s water quality, water quantity, and timing of water flows and levels. Approximately one half-mile of stream along with thirty acres of wetlands are located within the property, storing and filtering water that flows into the Tatum Sawgrass Marsh and the Myakka River.

“We are incredibly fortunate that people in our community care so deeply about conservation,” says Christine P. Johnson, president of Conservation Foundation. “Saving land is getting more difficult and expensive, requiring creativity and more resources. This project is a great example of what’s possible when you have dedicated supporters, a conservation-minded seller, and organizational assets in place.”

The property is not yet open to the public, though those wishing to visit have an exclusive opportunity later this year as it will be the site of Conservation Foundation’s annual fundraising event, Feast Upon the Fields, scheduled for December 5, 2021.

[Anniversary]  DSDG Architects Celebrates 20 Years of Achievement

Local, award-winning achitecture firm, DSDG Architects, recently celebrated 20 years in business—co-founded in 2001 by Mark Sultana, AIA. The now 13-person, full-service firm celebrates an impressive portfolio of awards and recognition over the years in creating and building over 200 contemporary home designs along the Gulf Coast that are not only iconic but comfortable and livable. 

Sultana designed and built his first modern home in 1999. The home won multiple home design categories, which launched his career. “Once that house got published in a few magazines, I started getting phone calls for modern commissions, and things really started to take off,” he says. Today, DSDG Architects is known for its contemporary, waterfront homes that include simple, clean and elegant design concepts. They continue to work on various projects, contributing stunning commercial and residential properties to the Florida Coast—including The Sarasota Yacht Club, Ringling College Studio Lab Campus, and two high rise condominiums under construction: The Collection and The Evolution. 

In addition to an impressive portfolio of awards and architecture, the company foundation was built on Sultana's reputation of always viewing architecture as art. A likely reason this 20-year milestone has been reached with multiple awards and featured publications of DSDG Architects. “We’ve never done the same custom home more than once,” Sultana said. “Every home looks and feels new."

[People]  Sarasota Attorney Plays Prominent Role in Transforming ‘The Bay’

Sarasota Managing Partner and Vice Chair of Shumaker's Management Committee, Jennifer B. Compton is playing a prominent role in the long-awaited development of 53 acres known as ‘The Bay’. The more than $150 million dollar project will transform city-owned land, which is mostly a parking lot, into a blue-and-green oasis that celebrates nature, promotes environmental sustainability and provides accessibility for all.

“Growing up here, I remember school field trips to see a show at the Van Wezel,” said Compton.  “Afterwards, the other kids and I would have to eat lunch outside on the curb. Some 30 years later, that’s still the case for our children, but we are changing that. We are preserving the natural beauty of Sarasota Bay while creating an iconic destination where people can explore, make memories, and bask in the bayfront breeze. I am committed to leaving a cultural legacy that will benefit generations to come.”

Compton is using her legal expertise to pave the way for The Bay. She created a first-of-its-kind private/public partnership agreement between The Bay and city of Sarasota. She was also one of the founding directors of the Sarasota bayfront planning organization, and is currently the secretary of the Bay Park Conservancy. Construction is well underway for the first phase of the Bay, and some attractions including the mangrove bayou walkway are already open.

“There’s still so much more to come, including a playground, a concession area and fully-accessible launch dock. The Bay will be a permanent fixture for everyone to use and enjoy,” added Compton. “I think it’s going to be the type of thing where 100 years from now, people aren’t even going to be able to picture what it was before it was The Bay.”

[SOON]  PERFORMANCE: Steven Wright: Live in Concert , October 21, 8pm

Academy Award winning, Emmy and Grammy-nominated comedian Steven Wright continually sells out theaters internationally with his skewed comedic view of the world. Since his Tonight Show debut, which caused such a stir that Johnny invited him back to perform again within a week, the deadpan surrealist master has pushed the comedic boundaries in film, television and the live stage. With an Oscar-winning short film, a 2014 Emmy nomination, two Grammy-nominated CD’s, three critically acclaimed hour specials and countless appearances on TV and in film, Wright is a prototype comedian that others continually try to follow.


[SOON]  FILM: The Ringling: On Screen: When the Beat Drops , October 21, 1pm

Drop into the electric and subversive underground dance scene known as bucking. As voguing exploded out of the ballroom scene of NYC, bucking was boldly pioneered in the clubs of the Deep South as a new form of self-expression. When the Beat Drops presents a fresh glimpse into the magnetic artistry and flair behind this emerging dance culture. In his feature debut, famed choreographer and filmmaker Jamal Sims, who has worked with the likes of Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, and RuPaul's Drag Race, illuminates the warm-hearted and fierce queer black performers who make up one of the leading bucking groups in the city of Atlanta. As they train for their biggest competition yet, they face the risk of losing their jobs and family to compete at the top levels of this dance scene. Jamal Sims calls dance a super power, and with this film he crafts a vision of the power of dance to bring movement to new heights and elevate the queer community. This On Screen will show on October 21 at 1pm at Historic Asolo Theater.
