The current political buzz in Searcy—a new mayor is coming to town. Earlier this week a local businessman conducted a scientific phone poll, pitting four potential mayoral candidates against the incumbent Belinda Laforce.
Kyle Reeves, Dan Hodges, Dale Brewer, and Steve Sterling were all matched up against Laforce—read their full profiles: “Coming Soon: New Mayor to Searcy.”
AP cannot release all of the details of the poll at this time, but each of these four potential candidates beat Laforce in head to head matchups. One potential candidate beat Laforce by as many as 20 points. The closest race was separated by ½ of a percentage point, resulting in a Laforce loss.
One thing is sure: trouble looms for this incumbent mayor who has raised taxes, thwarted the state constitution, operated under a closed-door policy, and turned a deaf ear to The People.
