JONESBORO, AR - Jonesboro businessman Dan Pierce has formally launched his bid for the city's mayoral position. 

Pierce is the president and CEO of Action Graphix, a Jonesboro-based dynamic motion sign corporation with a presence in more than 20 countries.  He has lived in Jonesboro since his graduation from Arkansas State University in 1970, and has served as a member of the State Board of Higher Education for over a decade.  He has also served on the Board of Directors of the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Jonesboro School Board, and on the Board of Directors of the East Arkansas Area Agency on Aging.

Pierce becomes the third candidate to formally announce for the office of Mayor.  Jonesboro Police Department public information officer Doug Formon and local businessman Travis Moore previously revealed their plans to seek the office.   Longtime incumbent Hubert Brodell recently announced that he would not seek re-election when his current term ends.  Brodell has held the office since 1987.
