COTI endorsement of candidates
Sanibel voters will elect three new members of the city council on March 2. COTI, as a registered non-partisan political committee under Florida Statutes, has historically endorsed candidates for local public office that it believes embrace its mission. This year will be no different.
All candidates may ask for COTI’s endorsement. Those who do so will be asked to answer some written questions on an array of issues we think are relevant to Sanibel Captiva residents and the future of our islands. COTI board members will review all answers and consider other factors as well before deciding. We will, of course, share the questions and answers with you before March 2 so that you can make your own assessments.
In prior years candidates were invited to join our board members in person for questions. With COVID 19 it is not possible this year.
COTI will announce its endorsements publicly.
