Ed who? endorses Wills

Posted By on Fri, May 21, 2010 at 3:48 PM

I guess this is a counter to Joyce Elliott's announcement that David Boling, U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder's former chief of staff, had endorsed her candidacy for Congress after finishing behind her in the primary.

To any who might think this bestows Elliott with the Snyder mantle comes a note from the Robbie Wills campaign that says a previous Snyder chief of staff, Ed Fry, supports Wills. Ed's note (And, Ed, I'm just funning you a little with that headline):

 A progressive focuses on efficiency in all areas of our community. Robbie is a true progressive, and he gets the job done. In 2009, when Democrats and Republicans elected Robbie Arkansas's Speaker of the House, I took serious notice of him. I watched him closely because our state and nation faced the largest economic crisis since the Great Depression. When Arkansas faced million dollar budget gaps, under Robbie's leadership we balanced our budget, created jobs, cut taxes,and made the greatest improvements to Arkansas's health care system in decades.

Given the challenges facing our county in the next two years we need strong progressive leadership in Congress. For me, its simple, Robbie Wills has proven that he is committed to moving our state forward; now, that's a progressive I can support. I encourage you to cast your vote for Robbie Wills for U.S Congress on June 8th.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
