About 300 people packed into Michael’s on East Thursday to hear Sarasota County Commission candidates discuss and debate everything from single-member districts to Beach Road.

The event, which saw District 4 candidates Wesley Beggs (NCF alum), Mike Cosentino, Lourdes Ramirez and incumbent Al Maio take the stage, was part of a Sarasota Tiger Bay Club luncheon that acted as one of the few opportunities people have had to hear each of the candidates stake out their positions.
