He has spent 20 years serving the students of Jackson County, including 16 years as a principal, assistant principal or district supervisor. Since 2017, Buckner has worked in the Jackson County Superintendent’s Office.

“As the District 3 county commissioner, I will spearhead the improvement in the lives of others in Jackson County by focusing on economic development, education, infrastructure and services,” said Buckner. “We must actively work to support our businesses and attract the best jobs to Jackson County.”
