Jim Neugent has annouced his intention to file for re-election to the Polk County Quorum Court, District 2. His years of financial experience make him an asset to the Quorum Court as he has served as chairman of the Budget and Finance Committee for the past several years.
“The number one job of the Quorum Court is to manage the taxpayers money and I feel I have done so in a fair, conservative and honest manner over the years,” Neugent said. “As chairman of the Budget and Finance Committee, I have studied the budget each year and have suggested ways to cut spending in ways that have not hindered operations but kept the offices running efficiently.
Neugent added that he is supportive of all the county officials and workers and commends them for the fine job they do in executing their duties. He also stated how much he appreciates the county road crews for the outstanding job they do.
Jim and his wife, Terri, have four children and six grandchildren. He is a member of the First Baptist Church of Mena where he serves on the Missions Committee and currently serves as Interim Choir Director.
“I want to thank the citizens of District 2 for the trust you have placed in me over the years and I look forward to serving you during the next term,” Neugent said.
