Vote for Story

Jonesboro, AR

#21 Feb 12, 2014
Kary Story has some very good ideas for this town and will be a much welcomed change from the same old group we have in charge now. He's younger, progressive thinking, and is doing his homework on what needs to be done in this town to move forward and not keep the same politics and their friends in charge.

If you wanna see positive change for OUR town, Kary Story would be a vote in the right direction and may get something done in this town to get some decent jobs here.

Off topic, rumor is Larry Don Rose is fighting tooth and nail to keep the chicken processing plant away. That's our leadership for you, keep jobs out so LDR can keep paying nothing and make his millions off the backs of minimum wage workers...

That's good news. I hope he creates a homepage or makes his FB page public so voters can start vetting him. I wish the best to Mr. Story and all other candidates who are willing to offer their services for the good of the public.

Well now we have a mature person running for mayor and Mr. Walker will treat everyone the same and the GOB's will lose some of their power.

Mikey Johnson should so run if we want change.!!

I have lived here my entire life and have not seen much change. I have had the chance to sit down with Mikey Johnson though.This young man just got out of the Marine Corps after serving for 5 years. He is currently working on getting a 300 foot fishing Pier put on black river in the middle of town at the Overlook park. He is also bringing things to our river system including a huge Paddleboat and a canoe place, all of which we need. He is extremely intelligent and I loved talking with him. He has great plans on shaping our downtown area, creating a program to tear down the old crap houses and cleaning up our streets. He is for harsher drug penalties and wants to make the jailbirds work through that program to do what he is calling a Pocahontas beautification project.

He understands that you need enough of the older people in city counsel bc of there experience but a newer younger generation with fresh ideas and the drive and dedication.

He believes the aquatic center is a great idea but would love to see it brought down to a more feasible size. He said cut the project in half and help out our hospital. They need to be able to reset bones, cat scans, MRIs, and more cardiac machines. That is vital to keeping our jobs and bringing in new industry and business.

If you get the chance talk to him! He has my vote!

I'm telling you. Good man. Good husband and good father. Would make a hell of a mayor.

Johnson for mayor!!

-Sarah ask him about his health care idea! He really needs to propose it to our governor. He wants to staff a grant writer who would apply for all available grants that the city could have been getting all along!
