The Right Experience. The Right Choice for Manatee County.

Every step Kristy has taken and experience she has gathered along the way has led her to this very moment. From her carefully cultivated legal background, to her courtroom experience in both criminal and civil law in both County Court and County Civil Court, Kristy is the well-versed candidate Manatee County needs for County Court Judge. She possesses a reputation in the community for professionalism, optimism, and a hard work ethic.

More than the typical candidate, she brings great respect and empathy for each person standing before the Court. She understands that the average defendant or plaintiff standing before a judge is experiencing one of the most important and pivotal days of their lifetime, and she refuses to become desensitized to that stress.  Kristy personally has persevered through great personal tragedy of her own, having lost her husband, Rory Zinna, in November of 2018 after a protracted battle with cancer. The experience and loss created in her a deep empathy for the unique problems with which people may be faced. Because of this, she has cultivated a patient and calming presence in court and hopes to bring the same demeanor to the judicial bench.

A culmination of a lifetime of hard work, a desire to use her diverse experiences for the greater service and good of her legal community, and a personal and life-long connection to her Manatee County home have all prepared Kristy Zinna for the position of County Court Judge.
