|Time:||10 am - 3 pm|
Mote Marine Laboratory
1600 Ken Thompson Parkway
Sarasota, FL 34236
Sarasota County Administrator Tom Harmer and City of Sarasota Vice-Mayor Susan Chapman read their respective proclamations for Drive Electric Week. We had several other City and County commissioners attend as well as the City of Sarasota City Manager Tom Barwin.
Overall, the rain might have kept some folks away this year, but we had more people, more EV Owner participation, and more Dealership participation than last year.
