“Communist Housing” Commissioner George Kruse has betrayed voters on both a personal and ideological level.
Bradenton, FL – Career Law Enforcement Officer and local Republican Party Leader, April
Culbreath filed to restore conservative principles to the countywide seat currently held by
radical commissioner George Kruse.
Besides his personal issues, Kruse has railed against the Second Amendment, supported
Planned Parenthood, sought to socialize our local housing market, and worked to halt Manatee
County’s economic prosperity.
“George Kruse should register as a Democrat,” Republican Party of Manatee County Chair, April
“His vote to allow Planned Parenthood to continue relationships with organizations that use
our tax dollars was the last straw. As the leader of our local party and a conservative cop, it’s
time to retire Kruse to the liberal gossip columns he loves to be quoted on,” Culbreath said.
“I’m a pro-life, America First Republican and Conservative who will work together with other
local Republican leaders, not against them or our conservative agenda,” Culbreath concluded.
“I will not stand nor allow Planned Parenthood near our local tax dollars. I will proudly work to
allow county employees to exercise their Second Amendment rights. I will not allow local
government to place rent or price controls on local housing and I will proudly work with our
Sheriff to keep Manatee County safe and criminals behind bars,” Culbreath said.
