Sue Gunzburger was first elected to the Broward County Commission in November 1992 by a landslide margin, running on a promise to empower the neighborhoods, protect the environment and clean-up county government. She was easily re-elected in 1994. In 1998, 2002 and 2006, Sue was re-elected without opposition. In 2010, Sue won a hard fought re-election by an impressive margin. Her “people-powered” campaign fought for ethics reform and helped secure the implementation of the Broward Ethics Code.

She has also worked as a public school classroom teacher, a small businesswoman and a clinical marriage & family counselor. Sue and her late husband Gerry (1931-2009), moved to Hollywood in 1968. Married for just over 49 years, they are the proud parents of three grown children (Ron, Cindy and Judy) and three grandchildren (Emily, Joshua and Jacob).
