Incumbent Lycoming County Commissioner Tony Mussare gave his thoughts on some key county issues, including taxation, and the White Deer Golf Complex, a county-owned golf course, which has been met with controversy over the years.
Mussare is seeking the Republican nomination for his third term as commissioner, one he has said will be his last.
“It has been enjoyable working as a county commissioner,” Mussare said. “I’m just asking for four more years and we’ll wrap up a few things and I’ll be on my way.”
In addition to the county’s work to fund the levee recertification and to revitalize the White Deer Golf Complex, Mussare said he will work to sell excess property, which he has been vocal about for years.
Mussare also is adamant in his opposition to federal requirements from the Chesapeake Bay initiative, which he said implement expensive regulations on county municipalities and farms in an effort to improve water quality.
“How can they enforce something that they don’t even know exists?” Mussare said. “They don’t even know what our water quality is.”
