Very old, very conservative.

Lakewood Rand to me is in Bradenton - it has Bradenton schools which are known to be not as good as Sarasota Schools but I am not sure that is really true. Lakewood Ranch is very plasticy and boring and tons of traffic - it is upscale but in a fake way. Kinda like "new money"



Sarasota County is very large with many different areas


Hmmm, if you've been here for just 10 years, you still should be aware and/or already know that Lakewood Ranch is not a town or a city, and of course it's not in Bradenton. It's way east of Bradenton around 15mi to the east, and newer Lakewood Ranch to the south is more like 25mi away.

Also Lakewood Ranch doesn't have a school system, and City of Bradenton doesn't have a school system, neither does the City of Sarasota.

Sarasota County isn't that 'very large' at all , in fact it's SMALLER than Manatee County. SRQ is 735 sq mi, and Manatee County is 894 square miles

According to Public School Review, for the 2021 school year, there are 78 public schools in Manatee County, FL, serving 48,947 students. Manatee County has one of the highest concentrations of top ranked public schools in Florida. For the 2021 school year, there are 43 public schools in Sarasota, FL, serving 25,251 students. Sarasota also has one of the highest concentrations of top ranked public schools in Florida. Manatee County has almost twice as many students as Sarasota County, and serves a different demographic viz non-native speakers/immigrants.

Overall growth, expansion, residential/commercial growth within Manatee County is presently seen as outpacing Sarasota County

I would like to know if you are also nancy the reader? I'm a bit confused why my posts were selected for removal - is it because they don't fit with your narrative? So it's okay for you to disparage LWR but my posts about Bradenton get removed? I would just like some transparency.
