Mary Jane Van Buskirk Submitted Information

Mary_Jane
Let me start by saying I will not bore you with a long life time bio. My name is Mary Jane Van Buskirk I have lived in Raytown at the same address for 42 years. Have had three sons and one grandson graduate from the Raytown school system.
 
Yes, I am the wife of Alderman William (Bill) Van Buskirk who is currently serving his second term as Alderman in Ward 4. I have heard a few people say (some residents and some that are not) that I am just like my husband.  Let me set the record straight, there are issues that we agree on but there are also issues that we have different opinions about.
 
The reason I am running for the Charter Commission is to see our city move forward. We do need a charter, but we need one for the right reasons. It would enable us to better govern our own city. I am in favor of electing our Chief of Police and our Judge. I don’t favor a complicated charter, we have tried that in the past several times and it failed each time.
 
I would appreciate your vote on April 8th. Lets move Raytown forward, but we need do it for the right reasons.
