“Service on the Commission has provided me an opportunity to use my training, skills and experience to work with other people to improve the quality of life for all citizens and the future of Butler County,” Hickman said. “I want to keep working for the people of Butler County.”

Hickman said although there has been improvement during the last four years, a lot of work remains.

“We need to continue to find ways to increase funding for our roads, our Sheriff’s Office and our Volunteer Fire Departments,” Hickman said. “We must continue to work to recruit industry and find jobs for our citizens. Working together, we can make Butler County better.”
