Wednesday, January 20, 2010 at 8:58AM

Mike Buckner, a real estate appraiser, will seek the Anderson City Council At-Large seat vacated by Blake Williamson, who will not run again.

Filing for the city council’s elections begins tomorrow and ends Feb. 4. The election is scheduled for April 6.

Bucker released the following statement about his candidacy:

"Today I would like to announce my intention to run for Anderson City Council At-Large.  After many hours of consideration by my family and me, we made the decision the best way for me to serve our city is to run for office.

I believe I have much to offer as a city councilman.  I have had the unique opportunity to meet thousands of great Andersonians in my work as a real estate appraiser during the last twenty-five years.  I have found we all share many of the same hopes and concerns for the city of Anderson.  Being an Anderson native and businessman, I understand the challenges and problems experienced by businesses in our city. As a father, I know how important it is to meet the needs of our next generation.

I am currently on the board at Habitat for Humanity, and also serve on the Anderson County Board of Assessment Appeals.  My wife Susan and I are members of First Presbyterian Church where I have held the office of deacon.  My daughter Meg is a graduate of TL Hanna and currently attends the College of Charleston.

Please feel free to contact me at 934-2075 or email to mikeb@maxwellappraisers.com"
