Kind of man we need
For those dwellers in the 2nd Congressional District who are represented by a man whose only qualifications it seems are having a memorable name and driving an ancient blue truck, there is hope on the horizon.
Decrying dark money and championing real Arkansas values, Paul Spencer has arrived. As a government and history teacher at Catholic High School for Boys, Spencer knows what he’s about. Listening to his past and present students extol his methods and convictions will convince prospective voters of his commitment to democratic principles and inclusion. He believes in returning government to all of the people and to the genuine aspirations of Arkansans. Need more? He is a part-time farmer who is a beekeeper and pecan grower, so he sees different aspects of Arkansas.
I am far too old and cynical to be bedazzled by your run-of-the-mill politician, but Paul Spencer is far, far from being in that category. I am impressed and electrified; this is the kind of man we need in government: a decent, sincere, and principled man of whom Arkansans can be proud. It’s not too early to think 2018!
