John Buckland began working for City of Yuba City as police officer in 1979. He rose to the position of lieutenant before honorably retiring after 31 years of distinguished service. He developed numerous traffic safety programs that have been adopted statewide and is considered an expert in many aspects related to traffic.

John recognizes the need for a strong public safety presence in the city. This, coupled with a focus on new business and employment opportunities, will reduce crime and the current unemployment rate. He is a fiscal conservative that will work to maintain a balanced budget through tough economic times.

John is active in the community as the trip director of the annual Saint Andrew Presbyterian Church Youth Mexico Mission Trip, a member (past-president) of the Exchange Club, and volunteer coach for youth basketball.

John, along with his wife Tricia and their children, lives in Yuba City.
