Lin­coln To De­cide On Mayor


Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - FRONT PAGE - Sto­ries By Lynn Kut­ter/EN­TER­PRISE-LEADER

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?
