Commissioner Eric Buckson supports Jim Hosfelt

I write this letter as a show of support for Jim Hosfelt who is
running for the seat vacated by former commissioner Brad Eaby. I’ve
known Jim personally for many years and believe he will make an
outstanding addition to Levy Court. Jim Hosfelt has distinguished
himself through a lifetime of public service, joining the United
States Air Force early in life and then transitioning to a police
officer in the City of Dover.  After rising to the rank of Police
Chief, Jim Hosfelt retired and joined the Dover International Speedway
administrative team. In keeping with his belief that serving others is
in his blood, he was elected to and currently serves on the Dover City
Council.

Levy Court, more commonly known as County Council, plays a key role in
many aspects of everyday life. Commissioners are tasked with setting
tax rates and fees as well as managing a multi-million dollar budget
that includes public safety, public works, planning, code enforcement,
parks/rec and many other functions. On March 21st, voters in the 2nd
District of the county will go to the polls and decide who their next
commissioner will be. The 2nd District includes parts of South Dover
extending west of Wyoming, Hartly, and North Dover.

I have had the privilege of serving on Levy Court for the past 10
years. During that time commissioners have dealt with issues ranging
from the simple to very complex. The key to Levy Courts success has
been the ability to have commissioners push partisan politics aside
and focus on doing what is right. It is without hesitation that I
offer my endorsement of Jim Hosfelt for Levy Court Commissioner for
the 2nd District. I am confident that Jim Hosfelt will be a positive
addition to Levy Courts continued effort to put the county residents
first.

Sincerely,
Eric Buckson
Commissioner – 4th Levy Court District
