Buchanan On Station 2 Motivation & Redistricting Plans


Vern Buchanan tours Station 2 Innovation and talks about the next step to redistricting Sarasota County.


Congressman Vern Buchanan toured a local co-work space called “Station 2 Innovation.” Station 2 is a place for entrepreneurs to learn and teach each other what they know. The building is set up with collaborative and private meeting spaces. Station 2 offers business incubation services that provide mentoring and targets high growth potential. Rep. Buchanan stresses the importance of helping small businesses succeed in today’s competitive business environment. Co-working is free from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. every Tuesday at Station 2 Innovation.


After failing to agree on map last Friday, state lawmakers went to court today to discuss the next move in the congressional redistricting plans. One of the issues that is causing disagreement involves splitting Sarasota County between two congressional districts. This would result in Sarasota County being represented by two separate US representatives, which many are questioning. US Representative Vern Buchanan says he doesn’t have much say in the conclusion, but he does believe that it makes sense to keep the counties together. Lawmakers will return for another special session in October to discuss legislative redistricting.
