Saw this on Facebook. Haven't gotten in touch yet.

His own Facebook page describes Joshua Mahony as a nonprofit executive "focused on affordable education for sustainable income, women and minority empowerment."

Those are not exactly focuses of the current congressman in the 3rd District, Republican Rep. Steve Womack.

From the web: Born in El Dorado and a Fayetteville resident for 17 years, Mahony's nonprofit activities including serving as Board chair of the Ozark Literacy Council and president of the Arkansas Single Family Scholarship Fund. He has a family business, EAM, dedicated to natural resource management and ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic nomination for Washington County judge in 2016. He's a pilot and has been chairman of the Fayetteville Airport Commission. Twitter page gives you a flavor of his solidly Democratic politics.

  • 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.
