Why not you?

Local Elections Important

Conduit primarily focuses on issues at the state level, but today we want to talk about local government.

Most people assume their city, county, school district, and library are being run well.  After all, the officeholders are from your community and surely must have the same values as you and me. Right?

Communities around the state and around the nation have been shocked to find out that often is not the case, and that policies are being set by liberals and some, “squishy” on values, Republicans.

  1. In many communities, parents have had to fight tooth and nail against school boards and libraries that insist on sexualizing children, despite the protests of parents.
  2. Liberals are openly advising teachers on how to get around the state’s ban on the racist theory, Critical Race Theory, so that liberal indoctrination can continue without being noticed.
  3. Many cities, counties, and school districts insist that however much tax money they get, it is not enough, and taxpayers need to pay more for endless projects.
  4. More and more cities, counties, and school districts have adopted the attitude that they can violate the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by holding secret meetings or hiding public documents. When caught, they refuse to comply and force citizens to go to court, knowing that many citizens don’t have the time and money to do so and may drop the matter. Even when one Arkansas school district knew about sexual abuse in the school, the school board refused FOIA requests and parents had to go to court to find out what evils the school district had swept under the rug.

Arkansans can no longer afford to assume local governments will run smoothly and for the betterment of their citizens.

We have seen parents stepping out of their comfort zone to go to their school board meetings and challenge crazy liberal school boards. Now conservatives need to go the next step and run for local office.

Conservatives willing to serve in local office can turn the tide so we don’t have to worry about our local governments sexualizing children, spending money unwisely, or violating the Freedom of Information Act.

Please note that just because on officeholder “identifies” as a conservative or Republican doesn’t mean they he or she is one. It depends on their actions.

Please consider running for a city, county, or school district office. Running for a position on the city council, quorum court, or school board can have great impact. If not you, then encourage a conservative neighbor to run, pledging your support for them.

The filing time for many offices is fast approaching. Filing for most offices begins November 6 and ends on November 14.[i].

If you need more information on running for office, one source you might want to check is your county’s Republican committee. Here is a link to contact information for county committee chairs:

We also mentioned public library boards. Library boards are appointed by your mayor or county judge, or both, depending on how the library is organized.  If you are interested in serving on your library board talk to your mayor or county judge. Tell the appointing officer you would like to be considered for the next appointment.

We are reminded of Ezekiel 22:30 where God looked for someone to serve him and found no one.

I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one.

We were reminded of this scripture because today our communities are also in need of good men and good women to stand in the gap on local governments. So our question is: “Why not you?”
