Heber Springs mayor Jackie McPherson sets 1st District congressional announcement

Posted By on Wed, Feb 19, 2014 at 3:35 PM

  • Arkansas Business
  • CONGRESSIONAL PLANS: Heber Springs Mayor Jackie McPherson.
Heber Springs Mayor Jackie McPherson apparently will, as long rumored, enter the race for 1st District Congress as a Democrat against incumbent Republican Rick Crawford.

He's sent out a media announcement "of a major announcement regarding his congressional plans" at 10 a.m. Thursday at the Heber Springs community center. People NOT running typically don't schedule news conferences to announce the fact.

A friend of McPherson's had indicated to me his inclination to make the race several weeks ago, but at the time McPherson said his mind was not made up. The word got around sufficiently that Republicans shills have already been trying out talking points against him. 

By way of background: Arkansas Business talked to McPherson about the city's growth and new facilities in 2009. Michael Cook at Talk Business has addressed more recent political issues.
