Back in the 1980s, when she was a county commissioner and Evers was “Boss Hog,” Bradenton’s mayor, discussions about fixing Ware’s Creek began picking up steam.

Evers said they actually started when he was a councilman before that.

Anyway, anticipating the long, drawn out bureaucratic battle lying before them, Glass said she made a crazy promise.
