Vote John Flynn

The Weekly Vista - - News - Steve Markl Bella Vista

Elec­tion Day is rapidly ap­proach­ing. There are signs ev­ery­where in Bella Vista and the field is not lack­ing for good men and women who are more than ready to de­vote prob­a­bly hun­dreds of hours over the next four years to main­tain and im­prove the qual­ity of life we en­joy in our com­mu­nity.

My wife and I moved here from New Mex­ico just over three years ago and are de­lighted to call Bella Vista our home. Very shortly af­ter get­ting es­tab­lished in our new home, we had the op­por­tu­nity to be­come ac­quainted with one of our neigh­bors, John Flynn. We soon learned that John was a city coun­cil mem­ber for Ward 1.

In this ca­pac­ity, John has served four years as mayor pro tem­pore, chair­man of the Streets Com­mit­tee and, more re­cently, on the Ad­ver­tis­ing and Pro­mo­tions Com­mis­sion. He is cur­rently a pro­fes­sor of fi­nance and busi­ness law in the grad­u­ate school at the U of A. That speaks vol­umes to us when we con­sider the qual­i­fi­ca­tions of a city coun­cil mem­ber. In ad­di­tion, he has more than 30 years of ex­pe­ri­ence as a cor­po­rate at­tor­ney, which in­cludes gen­eral coun­sel to three dif­fer­ent cor­po­ra­tions and a le­gal staff mem­ber of two For­tune 500 cor­po­ra­tions.

Ob­vi­ously, Bella Vista’s first ward is very well rep­re­sented and has an ex­pe­ri­enced and hon­est “watch­dog,” but John’s com­mit­ment and tire­less ef­fort reach far beyond just our neigh­bor­hood. He has our vote! How about yours?
