Meet School Board Member Bridget Ziegler
Bridget files for re-election to the Sarasota County School Board alongside her daughters – Sloane (5), Reagan (8) and Fallon (2)
Bridget was first elected to the Sarasota County School Board in 2014, after being appointed by Governor Rick Scott to fill a vacancy, and was re-elected in 2018. During her time on the board, she has been a successful champion for hard fiscal responsibility, transparency, and parental rights.
Passion For Serving:
Bridget has always been active in her community, predominantly focused with local nonprofits. But as with any parent, once she had a child, her priorities and reason for living changed dramatically. With the birth of her daughter, Reagan, Bridget had a newfound sense of meaning: ensuring all families had access to high-quality education options.
The combination of her business acumen and passion for children is what has allowed her to be effective in serving her community, with a focus on what matters – the STUDENTS.
Throughout the her time as a School Board Member, she has been a voice for parents on the School Board and has assisted countless families navigating the various roadblocks and bureaucracy to ensure their problems are addressed promptly and in the best interest of the children.
