What other issues do you consider most important and how would you address it?

John H. Bucy III



Little progress is possible until we restore a culture of civility and a mindset that we need to work as partners, not antagonists. I want to be a leader in working across the aisle and bringing people to the table to seek innovative solutions to the problems we face. By working with our cities, counties, school boards, and other local jurisdictions to ensure core needs and services are being met for constituents, we can maximize our tax dollars and be more fiscally responsible. Last, we must respect local control and not hamstring or circumvent our local communities in their decision-making.
