Austin Gravley

The town of Frostproof, located in Polk County, Florida, now has two elected Libertarian officials, as Austin Gravley was elected to the city council on April 4.

Even though the election was non-partisan, Mr. Gravley switched his voter registration to Libertarian the day before the election.

Mr. Gravley won the one-on-one race with almost 62% of the vote. He ran for the city council back in 2015, losing by only 20 votes. The seat carries a three-year term.

Martin Sullivan was elected to the Frostproof City Council in 2015, and is in the second year of his term. He was recently chosen by the city council as the Vice-Mayor.

    ‘More economic development and more municipal youth programs”.

    What type of libertarian is this guy?

    What kind of libertarian WOULDN’T want economic development? Sure, there are ways to try to go about engaging in economic development a libertarian would not endorse (such as a dramatic increase of the minimum wage) but I cannot fathom what is wrong with economic development. “More municipal youth programs” is a little less certain, but it’s so vague it’s hard to tell what it means.

    Strive for more economic development by eliminating burdensome regulations, ordinances, fees and taxes. I want community based youth programs By allowing private organizations to use our facilities, but they also have to keep up the maintenance. Example being things like a youth ball program that would lease our facilities that we already own for one dollar a year and our local government would stay out of it.
