Jonesboro dentist will seek state rep seat

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Dr. Brad Erney has announced his candidacy for the Arkansas House of Representatives District 76 seat.

Dr. Erney is a dentist in Jonesboro and a member of both the Jonesboro Chamber of Commerce and the Arkansas State Dental Association.

"I'm looking forwarded to getting out in the district and listening to the ideas and needs of everyone" said Erney.  "I want people to know up front that I am an advocate of fiscally responsible government, a firm believer in gun rights, and solidly Pro Life.  If someone disagrees with me, I still want to hear their ideas so we can make the best decision for District 76."

Erney says he will continue his practice if elected.

District 76 is located in eastern Craighead County and is held by Representative Ray Kidd, who is unable to run for re-election due to term limits.
