Firefighters support Lioneld Jordan for mayor

Firefighters group back Jordan
In October, the Fayetteville Fire Fighters Association and the Fayetteville Fraternal Order of Police decided to endorse Lioneld Jordan for the mayor of Fayetteville. Both organizations interviewed candidates and made recommendations to their respective memberships on which candidate to support. Lioneld Jordan received our endorsement for mayor because he is accountable, trustworthy and experienced. We believe that as mayor he will continue to be accountable and trustworthy and he will use his experience to move the city of Fayetteville forward. He has never missed a City Council vote in eight years as a Ward 4 alderman. He has conducted more than 100 Ward 4 meetings to make sure that his constituents were able to stay informed and educated with regard to city business. Lioneld Jordan has a 100 percent voting record for Fayetteville’s trails and natural areas. Lioneld Jordan has served as vice mayor since 2004, a position that he was elected to by his colleagues on the council. He has received endorsements from the Arkansas Democrat Gazette and the Washington County Green Party. Lioneld has gained the endorsement of the Seirra Club and some of the current and past members of the city council. Lioneld Jordan has gained the respect of former mayoral candidates Steve Clark, Walt Eilers, Sami Sutton and Adam Firecat, which is why they chose to endorse Lioneld Jordan. Wednesday afternoon he also received an endorsement from former attorney general and mayoral candidate Steve Clark, who was once his opponent but now is his respected friend. We believe that Lioneld Jordan will bring accountability, integrity and trustworthiness to the position of the mayor for the city of Fayetteville.
