George Kruse
for Manatee
County Commission, District 7

Locally Focused, Common Sense Conservative

"I will continue to bring a private sector business approach to solving challenges like smart growth and responsible budgeting to the county commission. We need to bring common sense conservative policies and a public voice back to our Board."

Home: Welcome

I will continue to bring a common sense conservative voice to our Board of County Commissioners. We will focus on a small government, limited tax agenda that will protect both the personal rights and the personal capital of the citizens of Manatee County. I will ensure that diverse, free market views are heard and enacted for the benefit of the overall community in order to lower your cost of living while raising your quality of life.

I will actually focus on smart and inclusive growth in Manatee County, not just use these terms as soundbites. Rather than allowing unimpeded sprawl east of the FDAB, we need to develop incentives to encourage future growth where it is most sustainable. I will place a focus on in-fill redevelopment and areas in proximity to existing infrastructure, services and employment bases to minimize both environmental impact and traffic congestion. Most importantly, I will ensure future growth pays for itself.

I will return both transparency and your collective voice to our local government. Too many people in Manatee County feel they have lost a voice in the decision-making process. I will continue my town hall series to ensure that we bring discussions out in the public and that everyone in our community is afforded the right to be heard and respected. I believe in open dialogue, fair representation and opportunity for all through inclusive policies.

In 2024, I will run my own campaign with the incredible support I’ve already been offered by the community and not with paid consultants. I will not bundle checks from LLC’s or PAC’s that give a select few any perceived influence. I will attend all debates and continuously speak with the community without hiding behind scripts and pre-vetted, “friendly” events. Finally, I will pledge to focus on the local issues that affect your day-to-day lives and the positives of my proposed policies.
