Citizens, arrest this man

Andy Mayberry, the congressional candidate, has scheduled some Labor Day weekend gimmick events in hopes a bored TV crew or two will give him some free air time. News release on jump.

The release got us to thinking about his slogan, "It's time to take Mayberry thinking to Washington."

Apart from the fact that there are a growing number of Americans who don't know what the heck he's talking about, even though the Andy Griffith show/Mayberry RFD still airs on cable, we happen to have many recollections of Mayberry thinking that his slogan evokes and what of it he might take to Washington. 

Would Andy Mayberry be Gomer, madly racing around shouting "Citizen's arrest!"

Or dopey Goober?

Or befuddled Floyd the Barber?

Or rock-chunking Ernest T. Bass?

But we keep being drawn back to the image of earnest Deputy Barney Fife, entrusted with but one unchambered bullet and a propensity for bamboozlement by everyone from the town drunk to visiting bank robbers.

Let Andy work for you!

WHO: Andy Mayberry, Republican candidate for the District 2 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives

WHAT: Andy will lead a Labor Day Weekend series of free car washes in which he and volunteers will encourage voters to “let Andy work for you” … not only by personally washing their cars this weekend, but also as their elected representative in Washington D.C.

Andy will kick off each of the events by outlining some of the key elements of his campaign platform. He will also do his part to “clean up” some of the “dirty” issues (written on a vehicle) facing our nation.

WHEN/WHERE:

·         Friday, September 1 - Benton. The event begins at 4 p.m. at the Advance Auto Parts located at 1717 Military Road.

·         Saturday, September 2 - Little Rock. The event begins at 10 a.m. at Word of Outreach Bookstore located at 3300 Asher Avenue.

·         Saturday, September 2 - Searcy. The event begins at 4 p.m. at the Advance Auto Parts store located at 2806 East Race Street.


It's time to take Mayberry thinking

to Washington, D.C.!
