Hunter Running for District 3 Commission Seat
Planning commissioner Tommy Hunter has announced his intent to seek election as Gwinnett County's District 3 Commissioner.
In an announcement on the Elect Tommy Hunter Facebook page, Hunter cites issues including the county water supply, transportation, budget and open communications as part of his reason for seeking office.
“This is a wonderful district that I have loved my entire life, it deserves a County Commissioner who has an open-door policy toward constituents. I will offer that open-door if I am fortunate enough to serve you in this office,” Hunter stated in a press release.
Hunter added, “I will not forget who my boss is when elected – which are the residents of district three.”
In a post on his Facebook page, Hunter also weighed in on incumbent Mike Beaudreau's recent suggestion that the county sales tax be increased in order to provide property tax relief.
"Don't know about y'all, but I wouldn't mind replacing our entire property tax system with a sales tax and banning property taxes forever. But since that isn't gonna happen, how about government start paying for only the things we NEED and lower property taxes without having to add another one percent sales tax to do it? You know kind of like we citizens have to do when we hit lean times. What a novel idea!" Hunter wrote.
Hunter currently serves on the Gwinnett County Planning Commission and served four years as a member of the Gwinnett County Water and Sewerage Authority. He is currently employed as an engineering consultant and owns two businesses. Hunter resides in Buford with his wife Judith and two children.
