 Michael A. Moran, District 1

 

Michael A. Moran was elected to the Sarasota County Commission in 2016. It is his first elected position.
 
Moran advocates conservative policies and is a respected leader in the Florida business community. His goal is to make government accountable to taxpayers and fully represent all constituents. He is committed to keeping Sarasota a world-class community to raise a family, start a business or have a fulfilling retirement, all with as little governmental intrusion as possible. He would like to build an environment that encourages youthful, talented citizens to remain in Sarasota.
 
Moran is a tireless advocate for senior members of the community. He recognizes that protecting Sarasota’s gorgeous environmental landscape and developing the business community requires a healthy balance that is critical for the long-term success of the community.
 
Moran is a self-made businessman who understands the struggles of meeting a payroll, paying taxes and dealing with governmental red tape. After selling his payroll and insurance firm in Michigan, Moran moved to Sarasota in 2002 with his wife of more than 22 years, Lori, and their two children, Laina and Mike, Jr. 
 
In addition to Moran’s extensive business experience, he has a bachelor’s degree in Business and Insurance from Michigan State University.  Moran is a Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC), whose experience and formal education makes him well suited to deal with the financial dynamics facing Sarasota taxpayers
