No irregularities with homestead for Robertson

The Manatee County Property Appraiser's Office has determined there are no irregularities regarding homestead exemption for Bradenton Beach City Commissioner Janie Robertson.

A cursory review recently of online records for the Ward 3 commissioner revealed that she has three properties with a $25,000 homestead exemption: 600 block of Gulf Drive North, 4500 block of Park Lake Terrace North in Bradenton, and 1400 block of 15th Street West in Bradenton.

Scott Tussing, exemption supervisor with the property appraiser's office, said that the Bradenton Beach property "was purchased on Aug. 23, 2005, by Jane Robertson and Carl Parks. Only Robertson filed for the 2006 homestead exemption on this property. The 2005 homestead exemption on this property belonged to the sellers of the property, Loyd and Janet Gonzalez."

The Park Lake Terrace North property, Tussing said, "was the homestead exemption of Robertson from 1995 through 2005. The 2006 homestead exemption was removed due to her filing on another property [in Bradenton Beach]. This property is currently owned by Jane S. Robertson and Carl A. Parks. Carl's name was added to the property by deed on Feb. 22, 2006."

The 15th Street West property is owned by Mitchell Robertson and Jane S. Robertson, Tussing said, and "Mitchell is the only owner with homestead exemption."

The Park Lake Terrace North property "was my original condo which I kept when I moved into the Pines Trailer Park," Robertson said, "and I homesteaded [the condo]." Homestead exemptions are not applicable for the mobile homes at Pines.

Robertson has been a registered voter in Bradenton Beach since January 1995, according to the Manatee County Supervisor of Elections office

The Bradenton Beach city charter requires that elected officials live in the city for nine months prior to their filing for office. Robertson ran unopposed for the city commission seat in November last year.
