Meet Christian Ziegler

Father, Husband & Fiscal Conservative Who Loves Sarasota County

A Message From Christian:

Hi! Thank you for visiting my website and taking some time to get to know me before casting your vote!

One of the greatest financial investments you make in your life, is in your government. Paycheck by paycheck, you invest more and more of your hard-earned dollars into local, state and federal government. And deciding on how that money is best spent are your elected officials. From City Hall to the White House, you entrust individuals to best represent your interests, cast votes on behalf and spend money that you worked hard to earn. I realize this, which is why I have put together some information (below) that will allow you to better know my professional background, community involvement, experiences and values that will help me in my efforts to best represent you.

Please take a moment to read over the information on this page and if you have any feedback, criticisms, suggestions or questions, use the contact form at the bottom of the page to send them directly to me (I read everything).

Thank you for being an engaged citizen and I hope to earn your trust, support and vote over the next couple months!

Christian Ziegler
Candidate for Sarasota County Commission

Summary Of My Private Sector & Public Policy Experience

Leadership addressing important in the boardroom and on Main Street

business experience

In 2011, I joined with two local investors to launch a Dealers United, which was a local start-up business in the City of Sarasota that supported the automotive industry nationwide. Being employee #1 wasn’t easy, but it was an incredible experience growing a company from just myself to over 20 employees. During that experience, I was responsible for overseeing hiring, our culture, training, product development, marketing, sales, processes, meeting deadlines, negotiating contracts, and every other aspect of the business.

In 2016, I left Dealers United to launched my own digital marketing company – Microtargeted Media – serving private sector companies, non-profit & political organizations, as well as local state and federal candidates. It was a risk for me to break off on my own, but I quickly achieved success and outside of my family, it’s difficult to find anything more rewarding that owning a successful business.

federal Government

U.S. Congressman Vern Buchanan recruited me to move down to Sarasota to work on his first Congressional race in 2006. Following that successful campaign, I went to work for him on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. and later on in his District Office in Sarasota.

During my time on Capitol Hill, I served in two roles – Legislative Assistant and Director of New Media – to Congressman Buchanan.

As a Legislative Assistant, my responsibility was to conduct extensive research and bill analysis on legislation in the following areas – Veterans’ Affairs, Immigration, Foreign Affairs, Judiciary, Housing, Ethics & Elections, Governmental Affairs, and Social Issues. And with Congressman Buchanan serving on the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, the main focus of my efforts centered on all legislation affecting the Veterans.

State Government

I got my start working working in public policy as a paid Intern-Analyst for the Florida House of Representatives immediately following my graduation from Florida State University.

In that role, I was responsible for providing all of our State Representatives with a non-partisan staff analysis for pieces of legislation being proposed for passage in the following areas – Veterans’ Affairs, Domestic Security, Ethics & Elections, and Governmental Operations. Each staff analysis, was comprised of the constitutionality, historical research of the issue, the costs, legislative language summary, and affects on the citizens of Florida. This document was used by the State Representatives during committee and on the floor of the House when debate occurred and voters were taken.

Local Government

I have spent over a decade advocating for issues (such as becoming more business-friendly) and against issues (such as parking meters) at the local level, as well as assisting the campaigns of local candidates – from the North Port & Venice City Commission to the Sarasota County Hospital Board. This has given me the opportunity to develop key relationships with local leaders that are necessary to be successful at the local level.

My most direct relationship with local government, is through my wife who currently serves as the Chairman of the Sarasota County School Board. She since took office in 2014, she has been a champion in education here at home in Sarasota County and across the State of Florida.  And since education has, is and will always be a passion of mine, I’ll admit that it has been fun to hear her daily recaps about the school district’s challenges, struggles and successes over dinner.
