Dorothy Hall, Sheridan Democrat, to take another crack at House seat

Posted By on Thu, Oct 29, 2015 at 11:54 AM


Dorothy Hall, a Democrat from Sheridan and retired Cooperative Extension Service administrator who also runs a farm, is going to make another run for state House from District 10.

She lost by 180 votes in a primary race in 2014 with Mike Holcomb of Pine Bluff, who's since switched to the Republican Party. Says in her news believe "she believes that voters want someone they can trust." From her release:

Hall said her campaign would be about talking to voters and discussing the issues that legislators can actually do something about. She expects to focus on strengthening schools and educational opportunities from Pre-K through college or job-training programs, dealing with crowded prisons and the problems that created them, safeguarding rural hospitals and access to good healthcare.

“I believe my education, experience and work ethic will be an asset in addressing some of these issues,” Hall said. Vowing to fight for issues that are important to voters in District 10 and work to make their voices heard in Little Rock, Hall said, “I will base legislation on research and facts and bring a common sense approach to the resulting policies.”

When Holcomb switched parties, he mentioned Planned Parenthood, abortion and gay marriage. They are, it goes without saying, issues that the legislature is unable to do much about.
