Lincoln To Decide On Mayor
RESIDENT SEEKS MAYOR’S POSITION
LINCOLN — A city of Fayetteville employee is one of the candidates running for mayor of Lincoln.
Jason Davis has lived in the city of Lincoln for 15 years and is operations supervisor for Fayetteville’s recycling and trash department. Davis attended Lincoln and Siloam Springs schools.
Davis, along with other mayoral candidates, was emailed a profile form to fill out to provide information about himself and his candidacy. His form does not list any community involvement. He does not give any prior political experience.
The Enterprise-Leader asked the Lincoln mayoral candidates to answer the following questions about running for office.
Question: Why are you running for this position?
“I would like to see our community thrive again. I would like to see our community officers be more involved with our youth. I have worked for the City of Fayetteville for over 15 years and would like to adopt some of their ideas to our small community.”
Question: What do you consider are some of your qualifications to serve as Mayor?
“I have worked for the City of Fayetteville for over 15 years and had served on several committees such as the retirement committee and served as the chair for the Employee Senate.”
Question: Do you have ideas for local improvements that you think have not been discussed or considered publicly?
“I would like to see our sanitation go to 1 day a week instead of 2 so that our employees could focus on street and community repairs up.”
Question: What do you see as some of the issues the city will be facing in the next 5-10 years?
“Lack of new businesses and housing, we need to loosen the reins on letting these things happen.”
Davis did not have a response for the last question: Is there is any other information you would like to share about yourself as a candidate for elected office?
