Austin Guenther

City Council
Title: Councilmember, District 3
Austin Guenther

 I am a 6th generation Floridian born in Clearwater, Florida and have lived nearly my entire life in Mount Dora. I graduated from Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA with a major in International Business and returned home to Mount Dora. Since I’ve returned home, I have worked in the real estate development field with my father and brother Gerry and Jake Guenther. I have been a member of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board in 2020, and I am also active in the non-profits located in Mount Dora.

 I enjoy volunteering in Mount Dora’s Get Connected Stay Connected program which helps underserved youths in our City’s Northeast District to get the after-school resources they need. The reason I ran for City Council is my true love for Mount Dora, and the hope that I can help establish it as a place where everyone is able to live, work and play. I enjoy reading, chess, wakeboarding, fishing and cheering on the Florida Gators.
