.Buddy Burge took office this week as Page County's new administrator.
Burge is no stranger to the job or the area. He held the same job nearly 20 years ago and spent time teaching in Page County Schools. Burge says he's anxious to get past the numerous issues plaguing the country and start planning for the area's future.
"I really wanted to come back to work and I really liked the area when I was here before and I anticipate that I'll have a good relationship with the citizens and the board again," says Burge.
He says he wants to quickly get past the landfill and animal shelter issues that have plagued the terms of past administrators. Burge officially took office earlier this week.
