Economic Growth and Development for Bradenton

Harold E. Byrd Jr.: It’s Time for a Change

My name is Harold E. Byrd, Jr., and I want to be your next Mayor. We have had two back-to-back 20-year mayors in Bradenton and I believe that it is time for a change.


From 1990 to 1996, and again from 2007 until the present, I have represented a city that is beautiful. With controlled-growth, strong law enforcement and public safety, reasonable taxes, it is a wonderful place to live, work, raise a family, and retire.

My Vision for Bradenton

I have a vision for the future of Bradenton. I'd like to build a vibrant family-oriented community with strong moral values. I see strong economic development with jobs for everyone and communties where senior citizens and young families do not have to worry about losing their homes to high taxes.

Investments in the Future

I envision a community where one does not have to choose whether to buy food or to pay the water bill. Instead, I aim to nurture a community that invests in its children by building a future for them so that they become eager to return home after college.


As your mayor, I will advocate for and commit to neighborhood redevelopment with the same efforts devoted to the downtown area. I will work tirelessly to bring this vision of Bradenton to reality. 

Remember to Vote for Me on November 3, 2020

In order to make all this a reality, I need your help. You can help this grassroots campaign move forward by providing financial support, placing a yard sign, or volunteering on a committee.
