South County Tiger Bay Club was formed September 1, 2007, as a non-partisan organization with a membership consisting of professional men and women, both active and retired, of all ages who have an interest in politics, county and municipal government, school board and local education issues and all activities which impact the taxpayer and quality of life in south Sarasota County.
We decided it was better to attack the issues in face-to-face confrontations with key policy makers than merely lament the drift of politics. We’re political but non-partisan. The Charter and By-Laws of our organization prevent us from endorsing candidates or taking sides in political campaigns but we certainly subject the candidates who sit on our panel to a no-holds-barred question and answer session by our members.
The South County Tiger Bay Club members represent the communities of Osprey, Laurel, Nokomis, Venice, South Venice, Englewood and North Port.
Our mission is to promote community understanding of current political and social issues, through public discourse and the free exchange of ideas.
