news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY: usnavy.gif

Sertoman of the Day:    Bob “Bucky” Buckland: Born June 24th of 1932 in Hartford, CT Hospital, 1-1/2 miles from the CT river. He was the 5th of 6 kids. Bob graduated from Hall High in W. Hartford and the school is still standing. He attended undergraduate school at the Univ. of CT 1950-1956 interrupted by 2 years in the U.S. Navy (51-53). Bob mentioned a time he was stationed in Alaska and on a simulated invasion drill, WE LOST. Thanks Bob.


Bob was a Group Rep for Prudential Insurance Co. 1956-1958. On 11/30/57 Bob married Betty and they had three children, Mac, Toddie & Freddie, all of them married now. Bob and Betty have 7 grand children and 8 GG-grandkids. Betty was a nurse.

Bob left Prudential and went to the Univ. of Conn. School of Law 1958-61 and was admitted to the Conn. Bar July 1961. He was an Atty. for Conn. Mutual Live from 1961 to 1964. Bob and Betty then moved to Denver in 1964 to go into sale for Conn. Mutual. He is still associated with its successor, Mass. Mutual but is “partly retired” now.

Dick Sorensen brought Bob into the Lodo Club but since they didn't have many members in the club, Bob liked the size of the Arapahoe Club and moved over to it.

Program:  Dave Miley introduced Doug Clark who is running for Arapahoe County Commissioner in Dist. 1.

The job of County Commissioner is much more than just approving the budget, as important as that is. It is, to give some examples, making sure that zoning hearings are conducted in accordance with the law and approvals or denials are determined consistent with statutory requirements. It is knowing how transportation is funded and where to lobby for Federal and State monies. It is knowing the organizations and procedures for permitting sewer plants and the regulations which govern storm drainage waters. It is knowing how open space and parks are funded and maintained by cities and districts within the County and how those entities cooperate in order to provide regional facilities.

I have experience in these issues because I have been working on these issues for ten years as a member of city council and as the mayor. In addition I have served on the board of the Denver Regional Council of Governments which distributes Federal transportation dollars to the metro area. I was appointed by the governor to the board of the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District which handles storm drainage and flood issues in the metro area. I have been on the Metro Mayors Caucus which deals with regional cooperation between metro cities on matters of transportation, health, and other issues. I also was on the board of the Riverfront Authority which handled urban renewal.


Upcoming programs:
5/31 Joe Sloan: Denver water; Water issues in Colorado
6/7 Dan Reid, Support a Soldier
6/28 Barbara Roach DEA: Medical Marijuana
