David Gregory, a former local businessman, has filed papers with the County Board of Elections to run for the county commission seat currently held by Ron Kitchen, Jr.

He will seek the office as an NPA (No Party Affiliation) candidate in the general election to be held on November 6th.

Mr. Gregory, a native of Sudbury, VT, moved to Citrus County in 1978. For some 16 years, he owned and operated Liberty Delivery Services. After closing that business, he worked for the Citrus County Appraisers office as a field appraiser for 14 years.

While he attended Castleton University and following his graduation, he owned and operated a small general store and gas station in Whiting, Vermont.

With his announced intention to seek office, he must acquire 1,057 supporters to sign petitions on his behalf. A fund raising campaign will be underway soon.

Though he has never held a political office, he said he was inspired to run by a number of residents who have expressed dissatisfaction with the current board, especially on the matter of water rates in the county. He says he will bring business experience to the board.

He is also concerned about medical marijuana. He believes many local residents would benefit by having it readily available in the county. He faults the county for not acting to facilitate that.

In November, 2016, 71 percent of the Florida voters approved Amendment Two which required new laws to be drafted to make the substance available to more patients.

The legislature enacted legislation which became effective on January 1, 2017, Gregory recalls that 52,398 Citrus County residents voted in favor of the amendment; 27,010 were opposed. To him, that represents a clear mandate for the County Commission to respond.

Gregory and his wife, Corl, have three grown children, eleven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

 

 

EOC Note: Mr. Gregory will have a web presence on our site and will soon have petitions available online and drop off locations for signed petitions on both sides of the county!

Donations help buy van

By Nancy Kennedy courtesy Citrus Chronicle rest of the story here 

CRYSTAL RIVER — For David Gregory, his “new” 1999 eggplant-purple Plymouth Voyager van is like driving a sports car.

David Gregory is the proud owner of a much-needed van with a hoist to lift his motorized chair. Gregory has osteogenesis imperfecta, or “brittle bone disease.”</div><div class="buy-pic"><a href="http://www.lcni5.com/cgi-bin/c2newbuyphoto.cgi?pub=071&amp;orig=0812%2BNZ_van_donation.jpg" target="_new">Buy this photo</a></div>

Thanks to the generosity of the community, David Gregory is the proud owner of a much-needed van with a hoist to lift his motorized chair. Gregory has osteogenesis imperfecta, or “brittle bone disease.”

“I used to say my other one was the ‘Starship Enterprise’ — whenever I took off in it, it was an adventure,” he said. “I never knew if I’d make it to my destination. With this one, I like the whole concept of it because it’s compact. It’s a lot easier than my other one.

Born with osteogenesis imperfecta (“brittle bone disease”), Gregory had had more than 80 broken bones, has spent weeks in traction and has undergone surgeries to have steel rods implanted in his legs. He spends most of his days in a motorized chair. Rest of the story click here.
