Chris Daniel, of Mena, has announced his intent to run for Justice of the Peace in Polk County. Daniel submitted the following:
“I would like to announce my independent candidacy for Polk County, Arkansas Justice of the Peace District 1. I held this position for two terms several years ago and chose not to seek re-election due to a lot of out-of-town, work related travel at the time.
“I will be circulating my petition over the coming weeks and plan to file as soon as the books are open on February 22nd. I am not running against anyone, nor do I have an agenda. I am running for the people of Polk County and JP District 1.
“I enjoyed my time on the Quorum Court before and feel I have something to offer, and I have had a great deal of encouragement to run. No promises now or later, I’ll just do the best I can! If you live in JP District 1, your support and vote will be greatly appreciated.”
