Johnson County voters were able to meet and ask questions of candidates for House District 40, County Assessor, and Mayor of Buffalo during a recent forum hosted by the American Legion Post #13 in Buffalo.

Today we will focus on the two candidates for Mayor of Buffalo, Randy Dyess and Shane Shrader.

Shrader opened by telling those attending why he was running for

Dyess said he loves Buffalo and has served on the planning commission, city council, and as Mayor of Buffalo, and would like to serve again and continue to improve Buffalo and serve the citizens.

Those attending were able to ask questions of the candidates.

They were asked what the benefit is with the new business tech park “when there is a wool mill that can barely stay in business and a shop they can't keep occupied.”

Dyess explained the benefits.

Shrader said he did not have all the details and did not have the information at this time.

They were then asked if they had looked at the possible impacts to other businesses in the area.

Shrader again said there could be impacts, but he didn't have all the facts and did not want to “wing it.”

Dyess said he had considered the possible impacts to other businesses, but the tech park is designed more for technology companies and transportation distribution, which there aren't many of in Buffalo.
He said now the city will have a park to attract new business, and the state has paid for it.
