Candidate for Melbourne City Council District 3

Dr. Hazel Buggs

Dear Citizens,

I am campaigning for the Melbourne City Council District 3 seat which will be decided on November 4, 2014. I ran for this position in the 2012 Election and came in a strong second with over 10,500 votes, the highest ever received by an African American Candidate in this race.  I also received the majority votes in District 3 which I will represent.

The seat became vacant after the death of former Councilman Harry Goode and is temporarily occupied until the November 4th Election.

My community activities are many, especially appointed to serve on the Melbourne Downtown Redevelopment Advisory Committee to the Melbourne City Council for almost ten years.  I’m a licensed real estate agent and a prior business owner.
When I look at the organizational chart of the City of Melbourne, the Citizens are at the top. My concerns will always be for the public safety of our citizens, transportation services, improved infrastructure, managed growth development, crime and drug prevention, economic development, jobs, quality and quantity of our water, the environment, community involvement and outreach.

I have been a resident of Melbourne for 30 years and have a proven and verifiable record of community service and the moral integrity and experience to serve the Citizens of Melbourne.  I will be dedicated, devoted and determined to work for positive change and offer positive leadership and an open door policy to your concerns.  I want to serve you on the Melbourne City Council.  I am asking for your vote on November 4, 2014 to win. "LET'S DO IT AGAIN"

Servant Leader,
Hazel Buggs
Candidate for Melbourne City Council
District 3
