Derek Van Voast is the latest candidate to announce their intention to seek the Arkansas Senate District 7 seat that was vacated by Sen. Lance Eads.
Magnolia native Jeff Flanigan is the new principal of George Jr. High in Springdale. He assumes his new role July 1.
Kevin Flores is the first Latino elected to city office in Springdale. He was one of three candidates of color seeking a seat on city council.
Although the city of Springdale is home to large populations of Marshallese and Hispanic and Latino residents, its city council is comprised white representatives. That could change after November’s election.
