We are prepared to identify and help build such an organization. Below is an open letter to the gymnastics community in the United States. You began your journey in the sport of gymnastics for dozens of different reasons, but all of them trace back to gymnastics, and sport, being a positive influence in your life.
It is supposed to be fun, to challenge you, and to teach you lessons about dedication, teamwork, excellence and overcoming adversity. And while each of you has overcome adversity in different ways, some facing unimaginably terrible situations, everyone now faces the difficult reality of belonging to a national organization that continues to struggle to change its culture, to rebuild its leadership and to effectively serve its membership.
You might be asking why now? The short answer is that we believe the challenges facing the organization are simply more than it is capable of overcoming in its current form. We have worked closely with the new USAG board over recent months to support them, but despite diligent effort, the NGB continues to struggle. Even weeks ago, I hoped there was a different way forward. But we now believe that is no longer possible. You should know that revocation is subject to a process clearly outlined in the USOC Bylaws, and that process does not guarantee a particular outcome.
I do not know how long the process will take, and we will make every effort to proceed quickly. Sarasota has two County Commission seats subject to the primary and another for Democrats.

Four intake specialists would eventually work at Parkside instead of Loveland. Commissioner Christopher Constance asked. Human Services is located at the Loveland building, because it shares a facility with the Health Department. The Health Department once offered primary care, but not anymore, Hussey said.
Constance, a medical doctor, said he hopes that primary care will return as a service of the county Health Department. The cost of a new facility along with future maintenance is too much for the county, Constance said. Creating a new facility makes less sense when the future is moving toward virtual encounters, he said.
Human service staff may in the future work with clients over a visual phone connection. Other commissioners objected to the suggestion that human services will go virtual. Homeless people will not have an apartment from which to connect virtually, said Commissioner Joseph Tiseo.
