Harold E. Byrd, Jr., MPA, J.D.
I am the son of the late Rev. Harold E. Byrd, Sr. and Former Manatee County School Board Member, Ruby Byrd. I am married to Sharon Byrd. A product of the Manatee County School District, I received my B.A. from Eckerd College with a major in business management. Later, I received a Juris Doctor from Florida A & M College of Law. After that, I attended the University of Phoenix where I received my Master of Public Administration degree in December of 2015.
Over the years, I have worked at the local, state, and federal levels of government. Also, I have served as Ward 5 Councilman in the city of Bradenton from 1989-1995 and 2007-2021.
Dedicated Public Servant
Public service has always been a part of my life. This will continue to be a major focus of my work. With my latest educational attainment, I would like to utilize my many years of government experience to promote public policy that will be positive for District 2.
