Greetings! My name is Hazel Buggs.

I am a candidate for Mayor of Melbourne in the 2020 election. I have been a resident for 35 years and it is my sincere vision to help keep Melbourne both a safe and progressive city.

My focus will be on the concerns for:

 Improved Infrastructure & Roads

Preservation of the Indian River Lagoon

Crime and Drug Prevention 

Environmental Issues

 Maintaining a city budget that’s efficient and cost effective!

Moral integrity is of utmost importance to me. I have dedicated my career to the service of the communities with which I have been blessed to be involved with. I am a natural and persuasive communicator recognized for my keen ability to energize and inspire individuals towards achieving a common goal. I am experienced, qualified, and determined, and I’m asking for your vote!

Let's Win Together!!
