Manatee County School Board, District 2 candidate Robert Moates has raised $15,291 to date and has earned two top endorsements for his campaign.  The Home Builders Association (HBA) Manatee- Sarasota and the Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance (LWRBA) have both recently endorsed the Lakewood Ranch High School teacher and baseball coach. “I am so proud of these recent endorsements,” said Moates.  “It is such an honor to be recognized and supported by two organizations that contribute so much to our community. I look forward to serving the citizens of Manatee County together.”

Robert Moates teaches advanced placement government and honors economics classes at Lakewood Ranch High School and also coaches the Varsity baseball team.  He has been there for nine years and prior to teaching Moates served as a legislative aide to former US Congressman Dan Miller. A Manatee County native, Moates stated his main reason for running this campaign is “to step forward and provide a fresh perspective to the School Board and to give back to the community that served him so well growing up in Manatee County.”

His main goals when elected are to provide more accountability and better transparency on the board and to empower teachers and transform classrooms with modern technology.
