William "Bud" Hill

My name is William "Bud" Hill, Jr. and I am running for City Commission for reasons that are not only very important to me, but to many others whose voices are still are not being heard. 

I am originally form Johnson City and I am the proud father of 6. I am an honorably Discharged Veteran, having served in Europe and Southeast Asia. I am a Board certified Tool and Die Maker and a Certified Nursing Assistant. 

I attended Wichita State University, 83-85 majoring in Computer and Political Science. 

I am for economic development and downtown redevelopment. I am not for wasteful spending on projects that do not benefit the city as a whole. 

I am for preserving and protecting our natural and historic landmarks, because they are our legacies. And in keeping with the city's sound financial practices, I promise to adhere to it's budgetary concerns.
