I believe that the communities of district 65 hold great promise for the future. The key components of success are in place - location, natural resources, educational facilities, caring families, and hardworking individuals, but they are not being utilized in a way to bring out their full potential. When my family and I decided to move to Conway County, we fell in love with a tiny rock cabin and decided to buy it despite its size because we saw the potential of what it could be.
The previous owners had let the house fall into disrepair, but we were able to see past all the current flaws and envision what it could become. We moved in and slept in the dining room until we were able to add-on and increase the size of the house. The room additions were all done on a pay-as-you-go basis. With hard work, ingenuity and plenty of motivation, we were able to create a very comfortable house, meeting all the needs of our family, without increasing our debt.
This district has the same potential to become a region of job growth and economic improvement without increasing the local or state debt, but it will take a lot of hard work, ingenuity, and motivation.
When Winthrop Rockefeller came to Arkansas, he had a different way of doing things. He didn’t keep doing the same thing the government had been doing for years. He set up policies that provided a new way of operating, resulting in positive change for the state. He brought jobs to Arkansas. He crossed party lines to accomplish goals that had the best interests of the people of Arkansas in sight, and he got people working again. He didn’t listen when people said he couldn’t win. He didn’t listen when people said it couldn’t be done. He made history and created a legacy right here in Conway County.
We’ve supported traditional politics in this area since the 1880’s and what has that done to help our local economy? Do we really want to stay with the way things are, or do we want to work towards something better? Join with me in working to make history, not repeat it!
