Dear Editor:

I have been honored to collaborate with Mr. Bart Buchanan. For 15 years, we served Jackson County with sexual assault prevention and victim services.

Bart was instrumental in founding and maintaining of the Jackson County Sexual Assault Response Team, and in the building and training of the forensic nursing program, Jackson County Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner.

Bart has planted many flowers at the annual Flowers for Victims and held many candles during the candlelight vigils. Bart has displayed honorability as we worked through many cases.

I have also found Bart to be compassionate with youth. I referred one young man who returned stating Mr. Buchanan had impressed upon him the importance of not only how you represent yourself, but also how you represent your parents.

This is a lecture that I know Bart has lived. Bart is a picture of success for perspective parents, including adoptive parents.

Over the years, when evening events were scheduled, Bart would often be present with his wife and daughters. Here is where you see Bart most proud, especially with their new granddaughter.

I am confident in Bart’s loyalty to the people and know he will serve us well as Circuit Clerk for Jackson County.
