Buster Johnson has finally made his decision. The Lake Havasu City republican ended speculation about his political future on April 27, when he announced he will seek re-election to the Mohave County Board of supervisors in District 3.
Johnson is the most tenured member of the Board. He is seeking his sixth, four-year term of office.
“I’m running for re-election not just because of my experience, but also because I’m a principled officeholder who has always looked out for the taxpayer’s interests. I never cast a vote just to go along and enable a majority. That’s not my style and it’s not the way to govern,” Johnson said in a news release. “When I went into office in the changeover following the 1996 election, I said I would not be tied to any special interests or behind the scenes power elites. That is still true today. Meanwhile, I continue to stand for real solutions to economic issues that are based on hard work and dedication.”
Others seeking candidacy in the district 3 race include Gary Kellog and Marty Brown.
