Pete Emrich

Pete Emrich has lived in North Port since 1989. He has worked for the City of North Port for nearly two decades. During this time he has watched the city grow and flourish. Now, it's time to make some changes. Residents are frustrated with city government. They can't get questions answered and they don't see the transparency or accountability when it comes to how their tax dollars are spent. Having worked for the city for so long allows me to have a real understanding of the budget and how things could get done more efficiently. I'm ready for the challenge.
My wife and I raised our two children here and have worked with the school system, participated in hundreds of community events in North Port. Now our two beautiful grandchildren live here. They are our future. Let's make it the best we can for all residents in North Port.
