  While the Property Maintenance Code and the Jonesboro Police salary issue received a little attention at Thursday night’s Alderman Debate, one theme took center stage more than any issue.

The 5 candidates (Phil Cook, Dr. Richard Wang, Captain James Boweman, Joseph Woodbury, and Bobby Long) running for the Jonesboro City Council Ward 6, Position 1 seat felt there should be more transparency between the city government and its citizens.

Also discussed at the debate were minority issues, infrastructure, and economic development.

Early voting starts on May 3.  The general election will be May 10.  If a runoff is needed, it will be held on June 17.
