    Firefighters conducting the MDA boot drive are hardly panhandlers. Since the money stays in the county collected and the boot drive is the major fundraiser for the MDA, I see this as having a negative impact on Sarasota residents who rely on the services of MDA - summer camp for children, medical services, medical equipment, etc.

    Sarasota County may want to reconsider or provide variances for legitimate fundraising efforts.
