As we are a week into early voting, I am a week late with my endorsements. That’s not going to stop me from “speaking” my mind. Offices left unmentioned are either unopposed or those in which I don’t feel educated enough to make a public endorsement. I think these folks would represent us well:
Hot Springs Mayor: Ruth Carney
City Council District 2: Willie McCoy
City Council District 4: Blake Robertson
City Council District 5: Glenn Gallas
JP #1: Susan Wilkins
This is a good place for a personal note to all candidates. When Susan entered this race, I was able to drop out. I’ve never had a desire to hold any kind of public office, but was going to run for this position if Susan’s opponent had no competition.
I appreciate all who are trying to make our community a better place to live.
JP #4: Mary Bournival
JP #5: George Prichett
JP# 11: Larry Griffin
County Judge: Rick Davis
County Assessor: Tommy Thompson
County Treasurer: Tim Stockdale
Arkansas State Senator, District 19: Bill Sample
Arkansas State House, District 24: Keith Crass
Arkansas Governor: Jim Keet
U.S. House: Beth Anne Rankin
U.S. Senate: John Boozman
May God Bless America,
What a fine group of candidates! Sorry you could not make the meeting at GL on Thursday evening. Toward the end, all candidates present came forward for a blessing by Pastor Carney.To see them holding each others hands ,standing before the community,honoring the will of GOD was a profound and beautiful moment.Blessings to all and to the recommendations for voting to those that may not have been called .
Thank you, Barbara.
I wish I could have been there. I talked to Pastor Carney and he mentioned to me how good he felt about the meeting. We indeed have a great opportunity to elect some fine representatives. I hope that other cities and counties around the nation have made the effort that those in our community have in this election cycle. If so, we have a good chance to turn things around.
