Jonesboro Begins Early Voting on 2 Different Measures
Jonesboro residents begin early voting today (Tuesday) on 2 different measures. Voters will get to decide on who will fill the vacant alderman seat for Ward 6, Position 1 left by Tim McCall.
McCall resigned from his seat in early January after moving out of his ward. The 5 candidates running for the position are Phillip Cook, Dr. Richard Wang, Captain James Boweman, Joseph Woodbury, and Bobby Long.
You can watch the candidates debate on issues such as police salary, property maintenance code, economic development, and more here.
Those voting “for” the measure will be voting to repeal the ordinance which strikes down the code. Those voting “against” the measure will be voting against the repeal which keeps the code in place.
