Field of Candidates Growing for Jonesboro City Council Positions

JONESBORO, AR - Mikel Fears of Jonesboro informed Region 8 News this morning of his intentions to run for Jonesboro City Council.

Fears, a manager at Purcell Tire of Jonesboro, said that his intentions will be to streamline city government, cut waste and increase the productivity of city officials and the city council.

"I humbly request the honor to sit as a member of the city and as such, I will do my best to insure that all issues placed before me will be addressed and dealt with fairly and appropriately and to the best interest of you, the tax-paying, hard-working citizens of this fine city," said Fears.

KAIT will have more on Fears and his decision tonight on Region 8 News at Six.
