New county judge says he’s ready to help his people

HARRISBURG, Ark. (KAIT) - Randy Mills is the new Poinsett County judge, and he said Tuesday he wants to move the county forward.

Mills said his experience as Harrisburg mayor and as an election commissioner allowed him to meet people in the county on a deeper level.

He plans to use that experience in his new role, saying he’s open to hearing any concerns that citizens have.

“If they have a concern, they can call me. I’m attentive to them,” Mills said. “If they have a problem, their problem is important to me, so if they have a problem, they call me about it. It’s important to them, so it should be important to me.”

Mills will serve as the judge for the next two years; however, he cannot run for reelection in the next election.

Mills does not plan to stay in politics after this term, but he said “never say never.” After serving, Mills said he plans to go wherever the Lord leads him.

Mills took over the seat on Jan. 1 after former judge Bobby Cantrell resigned in December.
