VOTE Keith Truenow, Running for Florida Senate, District 13

From the Farm Bureau’s Field to the Hill Initiative to a seat on the Agriculture, Conservation & Resiliency subcommittee in the Florida House, Keith has always used his experience in the field to affect positive change in Tallahassee.

“I’ve been a farmer all my life, having the experience of running a successful business in this industry. If elected to the Senate, I’d be one of only two farmers in Tallahassee solving problems and working for positive change.”

Success in the Florida House

Keith serves on several committees:

• Criminal Justice Subcommittee (Chair)

• Infrastructure Strategies Committee

• Agriculture, Conservation & Resiliency Subcommittee

• Judiciary Committee

• Agriculture & Natural Resources Appropriations Subcommittee

• Constitutional Rights, Rule of Law & Government Operations Subcommittee

Supporting Needed Legislation

Some recent examples of Keith’s work in the House:

• As the chair, Keith ensured the Criminal Justice Subcommittee heard the legislation that Governor DeSantis later signed, severely increasing the penalties against child-directed sexual offenses.

• Proudly supported the education bill the Governor signed in April to maintain Florida’s leadership in education nationwide.

• Keith was proud to support the 2024-25 tax relief package for Florida families that Governor DeSantis signed in early May.

Lengthy History of Service

Keith’s interest in public service began more than 30 years ago with Farm Bureau and expanded to several organizations through which he serves the farming industry and the community:

• US Air Force Veteran

• Florida Sod Growers Association

• Lake County Fair Association

• Lake County Farm Bureau

• Harris Chain of Lakes Restoration Council

• Lake County Leadership 2003 graduate

“Agriculture is not only a part of Florida’s heritage, but it is also a viable path to help us meet our needs for the future.”
