Buckman pledges, if elected, to be District 72’s voice and advocate. As an attorney, he formed a law firm with his wife in Sarasota. Buckman has lived in Sarasota for three decades and raised three children, all of whom attended Sarasota public schools. Two of his three children are also attorneys in the family law firm. Buckman decided to run for the Florida HD 72 seat due to his concerns about Red Tide, traffic congestion and keeping Sarasota schools free of for-profit companies and special interests. On the issues, Buckman wants to see “clean, clear water” as “our environment and the local economy…depends on it.” He will work towards “responsible development” with “well managed” growth. He is especially concerned that “our community’s needs (are) being sacrificed to developer interests.” Buckman calls for investment in infrastructure, including rebuilding and maintaining our essential sewers, power stations and roads. He calls for financially supporting public schools and teachers. He vows to block any attempt to divert tax dollars to private schools.
