Keith Truenow

Don’t let the suit fool you. Keith Truenow has been a farmer all his life. He grew up in a farm family, worked for a local farm while in high school and after returning from active duty in the Air Force, and eventually established his own agribusiness which he ran for 20 years.

“I have a passion for agriculture, partly because it is the only industry where you can watch something grow and know everything about its development is in direct relationship to what you do.”

Through that passion, Keith has worked in several capacities as an advocate for the industry. He is a member of the Turfgrass Producers of Florida, Lake County Farm Bureau and Lake County Fair Association. He was also a member of the Harris Chain of Lakes Restoration Council, appointed by then-Governor, Rick Scott.

Keith was elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2020 where he works on issues that affect farmers throughout the state. Keith was part of a committee drafting best management practices for turf grass, and he works on stormwater, fertilizer and other regulations affecting Florida farmers.

“I’m proud to advocate for farmers throughout the state of Florida. Agriculture is still a viable part of Florida’s heritage and our needs for the future.”

Keith is running to replace his mentor, Senator Baxley, in the Florida Senate District 13 in 2024.
