Jonesboro Mayor Participates In His Last National Night Out

August 3, 2004 -- Posted at: 11:00p.m. CDT

JONESBORO, AR - After declaring National Night Out underway shortly after 6:00pm, Jonesboro Mayor Hubert Brodell hoped to hit 10 parties in less than 2 hours. For the last 5 years, he has helped oversee this yearly event. This year was his last year to participate as mayor.

We were with him for 5 of his stops. The mayor took time to shake what seemed like a hundred hands, and made sure to partake in plenty of prepared food along the way. Two of his favorites: hot dogs and ice cream. He admitted the food is something he enjoys, but said the results after the festivities have ended is what makes the yearly event so important.

"It's kind of like a watch party, because they learn then to watch things, and watch their neighbors and to see everything that's going, so it's great, because... and the kids get to mix, and that's what life is about, and that's what we're wanting to do in Jonesboro," said Mayor Brodell.

The mayor reiterated that this is his final National Night Out. He said rumors about him re-running for mayor are not true.
