It's time for a change, Carroll County.
  
WHAT WILL MAYOR CHARLIE REECE DO AS COUNTY JUDGE? 

  
MY RECORD AS MAYOR OF GREEN FOREST SPEAKS FOR ITSELF, HAVING TAKEN THE CITY FROM A STRUGGLING LITTLE TOWN TO A GROWING TOWN WHOSE PRIMARY CRITICAL NEED IS AFFORDABLE HOUSING TO ENABLE NEW CITIZENS TO LIVE HERE CLOSE TO WHERE THEY WORK.  AS WELL AS GROWING RESERVES IN THE CITY TO NEARLY $4,000,000 ALL WHILE PURCHASING NEW POLICE AND FIRE EQUIPMENT AND VEHICLES.  I AM COMMITTED TO OUR FIRST RESPONDERS.
 
WHAT WILL I DO AS COUNTY JUDGE?
 
FIRST OFF I WILL COMMUNICATE HONESTLY WITH ALL CITIZENS OF CARROLL COUNTY AND PROVIDE LEADERSHIP NEEDED IN THIS DAY AND AGE;  SECONDLY, I WILL DILIGENTLY VISIT THE FOLKS IN LITTLE ROCK AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND SOURCE ANY FUNDS THAT MIGHT BE AVAILABLE BY WAY OF GRANTS FOR OUR ROADS AND OTHER INFRASTRUCTURE;  THIRD, I WILL DRIVE ALL THE COUNTY ROADS AND EVALUATE THE MAINTENANCE NEEDS AND DEVELOP A SYSTEM WHICH WILL SHOW WHERE WE STAND ON EACH COUNTY ROAD—OPEN FOR ALL TO SEE BECAUSE OUR COUNTY ROADS ARE A LIFELINE FOR THIS COUNTY’S FARMERS;  FORTH, I PLAN ON MEETING WITH EACH ELECTED OFFICIAL IN THE COUNTY GOVERNMENT ON A MONTHLY BASIS SO WE CAN PLAN AS A TEAM;  FIFTH, I WILL WORK WITH THE MANAGEMENT OF THE CARROLL COUNTY AIRPORT SO WE CAN DETERMINE HOW MUCH EXPANSION/IMPROVEMENT MAY BE NECESSARY TO MAKE THE COUNTY AIRPORT A VIABLE ASSET FOR OUR GOVERNMENT AND CORPORATE PARTNERS AND FINALLY, I WILL NOT APPROVE ANY PURCHASE OF AN ITEM  (LIKE THE $50,000) WITHOUT APPROVAL FROM THE QUORUM COURT…….
 
THE COUNTY JUDGE HAS TO BE THE FACE OF THE COUNTY AND DO WHATEVER HE CAN TO PUT THE COUNTY IN A FAVORABLE LIGHT FOR PROSPECTIVE NEW BUSINESSES.
 
THE INCUMBENT HAS MADE SOME VERY QUESTIONABLE DECISIONS WHICH HAVE NEGATIVEY IMPACTED THE COUNTY AND ITS CITIZENS….MOST NOTABLE IS THE AMBULANCE ISSUE WHICH PLACED CITIZENS IN THE EASTERN PART OF CARROLL COUNTY IN DANGER WITHOUT AN AMBULANCE COMPANY FOR A PERIOD…..AN ISSUE WHICH I (ALONG WITH THE COMMITTEE) SOLVED BY SOLICITING A NEW AMBULANCE COMPANY FOR THE EASTERN CARROLL COUNTY AMBULANCE DISTRICT.  ANOTHER QUESTIONABLE DECISION WAS THE DECISION TO SPEND $50,000 WITHOUT APPROVAL FROM THE QUORUM COURT—AS MAYOR I HAVE TO GET APPROVAL FOR ANY EXPENDITURE IN EXCESS OF $5,000.
 
NOW, I AM A COMMUNICATOR-----I WILL COMMUNICATE WITH ALL WHO APPROACH ME.  I WILL NOT DENIGRATE THEM AND I WILL BE EMPATHETIC TO CITIZENS WHO COME TO ME WITH AN ISSUE.  I HAVE EXTENSIVE SUCCESSFUL MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE AND THAT WILL CONTINUE.




                               WHY CHARLIE REECE FOR COUNTY JUDGE RATHER THAN THE INCUMBENT? 

 
        TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESS IN PRIVATE AS WELL AS GOVERNMENTAL POSITIONS

        SOLID DECISION MAKING.  DO  YOU WANT TO RE-ELECT AN INDIVIDUAL WHO HAS PLACED THE CITIZENS OF CARROLL COUNTY IN JEOPARDY (AMBULANCE FIASCO) AND AS A RESULT THE CITIZENS IN THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE COUNTY SAW THEIR TAXES RISE TO PAY FOR AN AMBULANCE SERVICE...


THE AMBULANCE FIASCO……….MERCY CAME TO THE INCUMBENT REQUESTING SOME ASSISTANCE FROM THE COUNTY BECAUSE THE AMBULANCE DIVISION  WAS BLEEDING MONEY TO THE TUNE OF SEVERAL HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS.  THE JUDGE DID NOT WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT AND TOLD MERCY THAT HE WOULD HELP OUT BY BRINGING IN ANOTHER SERVICE FROM CALICO ROCK……AND THEY WOULD ALTERNATE CALLS…….WELL, MERCY HAS FIXED COSTS AND WHEN YOU CUT REVENUE IN HALF……..THAT JUST ESCALATES THE LOSSES.  SO MERCY GAVE NOTICE THE OTHER PROVIDER CAME IN AND PROVIDED SERVICE FOR A FEW MONTHS AND THEN THEY QUIT WITH A FEW DAYS NOTICE, LEAVING EASTERN CARROLL COUNTY WITH NO AMBULANCE SERVICE……THAT IS WHEN I CONTACTED SOUTHERN AND THEY AGREED TO COVER THE CITY OF GREEN FOREST...
 

        DO YOU WANT A COUNTY OFFICIAL TO CONTINUE MAKING DECISIONS FOR THE “GOOD OLE BOY” NETWORK?  HOW ABOUT A REAL MANAGER?


        HOW ABOUT ELECTING AN INDIVIDUAL WHO WILL “MARKET” THE COUNTY TO ATTRACT NEW BUSINESS AND EMPLOYERS vs JUST SITTING IN THE OFFICE?


        DO YOU WANT A COUNTY JUDGE WHO WILL LISTEN OR HANG UP ON YOU WHEN YOU ASK A QUESTION….?


        AND... HOW ABOUT TAKING CARE OF ALL COUNTY ROADS vs JUST THOSE WITH WHOM YOU ARE “BUDS”
