John Munson, Republican

For Washington County Commissioners

For Washington County Commissioners

July 13, 2006

Washington County Commissioner John Munson, a Republican, has filed for re-election to a second term, saying growth control and overcrowded schools are the biggest issues he will tackle if elected to serve another four years.

Munson, 65, of 17817 Bluebell Drive in Maugansville, suggested growth occur in areas where water and sewer connections are adequate and where schools can take on the new students developments would create.

"We can require developers to make schools adequate by either offering land or building them," he said. "I think we ought to require them to build the schools to Board of Education standards."

Spending on road repairs has increased from around $1 million a year to $5 million a year since he's become a commissioner, which he said is a positive increase, considering there are 830 miles of county roads and residents "want decent roads."

He said he considers himself readily available to his constituents.

"I respond to every phone call from people having problems and 99 percent of the time, I can help them or at least find someone who can help them," he said. "They call me at home at all hours, too. That's OK. That's my job."

A postmaster for 10 years, Munson retired after 30 years with the U.S. Postal Service.

Married to Audrey Munson for nearly 39 years, Munson has one son, John C. Munson Jr.
