There were 6 of them 3 for each propulsion unit. Redundancy was the name of that game. My Inspection stamp may be on the moon! After a government contract was cancelled I was laid off. Owning and operating The Store, in Whiting VT which was an Amoco gas station and country store and it had an apartment over the store making it a perfect fit while I attended college at Castleton State College during the day and came home and ran the The Store and gas station at night for four years while obtaining my B.A. in Sociology with a minor in Education. Taking a sabbatical after College to come to Florida, postponing my LSAT’s in preparation for law school, is where I meet my beautiful wife, Corl, who was working as a breakfast manager at Burger King and soon Vermont and the LSAT’s were forgotten. I met Bessie Reese of the Citrus County School Board and she suggested that I substitute teach while deciding where I wanted to work, which I did for a few years teaching at Crystal River High School, Lecanto High School and Hernando Elementary School. Working as a private contractor for Citrus County for 18 years, as owner-operator of Liberty Delivery with 15- 20 employees, we delivered all the county agenda’s and other documents to the various boards and offices of the county as well as other deliveries in and out of Citrus County included but not limited to, doctor offices for labs specimens, transporting medical equipment between the two hospitals in the county during their early reconstruction, Damron’s Parts (LKQ), etc. After missing 8 weeks work in 2005 because of my open heart surgery I went back to work at the Citrus County Property Appraiser’s Office and worked the next 14 years in a power chair that I plan to continue using when elected Property Appraiser. Working for 14 years in the Citrus County Property Appraisers Office, retiring as a Field Appraiser and having 32 years accumulated experience with the intricacies of Citrus County government in all areas puts me an in unparalleled position to take over the reins of property appraiser.

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!
