Meet Our Lafayette Co. Candidate for Presiding Commissioner--Harold Hoflander

Harold Hoflander
“A proven business leader to move our county forward”

Harold Hoflander, a resident of Lafayette County for nearly thirty years, is the Republican candidate for the open seat of Lafayette County Presiding Commissioner.

Lafayette County is changing daily as its close proximity to Kansas City brings new and challenging issues to our doorstep each year.

Currently, we are facing difficult financial times at every level of government. Going forward, we need a county presiding commissioner who can help us navigate what could be trying economic situations ahead.

Hoflander brings to the job a wealth of business know-how and leadership experience that is vital to the successful management of a county the size of ours.

We need a Presiding Commissioner who has rock-solid analytical skills, both financial and operational, with a strong and working understanding at an economic and financial level.

Harold Hoflander is a good fit for the job of Presiding Commissioner, and we hope you will join the Central Committee in working hard to elect him to this position.

Hoflander has owned and operated the Ford dealership in Higginsville since 1982. He is active in numerous community, civic, and service organizations including serving for many years as a board member of the Higginsville Development Board and the Higginsville Chamber of Commerce. He is also a past-president and current board member of Main Street Higginsville, Inc., a non-profit economic development organization. Hoflander is a Paul Harris Fellow of the Higginsville Rotary Club and a member of Salem United Church of Christ. Hoflander is also a member of the Missouri Farm Bureau and continues to operate his family farm, a Missouri Century Farm, in Cooper County. He also farms a small acreage in Lafayette County.
