Vote Real Experience

Vote Ed Hill Craighead County Judge Experience Experience Experience Experience

Economic Development I have a demonstrated history of working with the chamber and industry.

County Roads In my 33 years working in multiple areas of the Craighead County Road Department I have working knowledge of every road in the county.

2010 NORTHEAST ARKANSAS DISTRICT

Fair Queen Pageant September 24 — 7:30 p.m. Northeast Arkansas District Fairgrounds Entrants for the pageant must be between the ages of 16 and 21 years of age, must be single, must have never been married and have no children. Proof of age will be required at check-in. Contestants must never have been paid for modeling. A contestant must reside in the county they represent or attend Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. The District Fair Queen will represent the district at the Arkansas State Fair Queen pageant in Little Rock in October.

For more information, call the Fair Office at 935-4331

Funding In the 9 years as your Craighead County Road Superintendent I have helped secure state funds for our roads and bridges.

Financial In my 9 years as Road Superintendent I was responsible for development and oversight of the county’s multimillion dollar road budget. This accounts for a large portion of the County Judge’s budget. The next Craighead County Judge could not only impact our financial stability but our children’s. We need a financially responsible County Judge.

Contestants compete in evening gown, sports attire and private interview. They are judged on beauty, poise and personality.

My Experience is Unmatched! I look forward to working with all the local town, city, state and even federal officials. Let me put my Real Experience to work for the citizens of Craighead County!

Please vote Tuesday, Nov. 2
