“For many years, I’ve admired Ms. Ross and her tremendous achievements, so it will be an honor to present her with the key to the city,” Sarasota Vice Mayor Willie
Shaw, who will present the key to Ross, said in a news release. “When someone is given the key to the city, it recognizes an outstanding contribution or accomplishment. It also symbolizes that the person is always welcome in our city. And, Ms. Ross certainly
always will be welcome in Sarasota.”
