LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Hosfelt deserves re-election

I write this letter as a show of support for Jim Hosfelt who is running for re-election to Levy Court. I’ve known Jim personally for many years and have witnessed firsthand his positive leadership while serving as a commissioner.

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 also a member of 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. It is divided into six districts. Commissioner Hosfelt is running for re-election in the 2nd District which 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 12 years and with Commissioner Hosfelt for the past two. During that time, commissioners have dealt with issues ranging from the simple to very complex. The key to Levy Court’s 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.

Eric Buckson
Levy Court Commissioner
