Nelsonville native Alex Burcher today announced his candidacy for Athens County commissioner, pledging he will represent ALL citizens in Athens County. 

“I’m running to be an Athens COUNTY commissioner, not just an Athens CITY commissioner, because everyone in Athens County matters,” said Burcher, a Republican. “I will campaign in every city, village, township and community in Athens County because I am committed to representing every citizen of Athens County and making sure their voice is heard in their county government.”

 If elected, Burcher pledged the county commissioners would meet regularly in communities throughout the county, not just at the county courthouse – and would do so on evenings and weekends to make the meetings more convenient for taxpayers. Burcher is running on a five-point platform:

ü  Reforming property taxes

ü  Improving infrastructure

ü  Keeping and creating jobs

ü  Fighting corruption

ü  Promoting education 

“If we don’t invest in our children and start making decisions based on what’s best for our children and the future of our community, then we will have no future,” Burcher said. “That’s why I am asking the people of Athens County to hire me to be your next Athens County commissioner. God Bless the United States of America and God Bless Athens County.”
