Florida town now has two elected Libertarian officials

Austin Gravley

The town of Frostproof, located in Polk County, Florida, now has two elected Libertarian officials, as Austin Gravley was elected to the city council on April 4.

Even though the election was nonpartisan, Gravley switched his voter registration to Libertarian the day before the election.

Gravley won the one-on-one race with almost 62 percent of the vote. He had run for  city council back in 2015, losing by only 20 votes. The seat carries a three-year term.

Libertarian Martin Sullivan was elected to the Frostproof City Council in 2015, and is in the second year of his term. Sullivan was recently chosen by the city council as the vice mayor.
