They are, in alphabetical order, Jack Bruce, Billy Powell, incumbent Pat Sebo and Linda Wenz.
Bruce said throughout his business career, he has worked within budget to achieve maximum results and is experienced in knowing the importance of having a business plan and the right personnel to make it work.
“A city is like a business and in order to run a city efficiently, you need to have a budget that is as lean as possible while providing all the services required by citizens,” he said. “I have that experience.”
Powell said his business experience as a CEO and that gained as a past Jonesboro council member makes him a good choice for voters.
“I want Jonesboro to grow in the direction its citizens want and I am dedicated to that effort on council,” he said.
Sebo, the current mayor pro-tem, said her leadership skills plus her ability to work well with the mayor and fellow council members is important to the city’s continued success.
“I have actively represented the city the last four years from our Main Street to the state capital and even took on and fought the railroad to keep our trees,” Sebo said.
“I have also successfully chaired numerous events in the city and partnered with the county extension office to bring back our Farmers Market and I am ready to serve another four years.”
Wenz, who has also served as a past council member, credits her council experience and her hard work ethic as reasons for voters to return her to the council.
“I enjoyed the challenges and am looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones, all in the interest of our city,” she said.
