Democratic Candidates Peret & McKee

To Speak At August DPGC Meeting

Two local Democratic candidates will be the featured speakers at the upcoming August meeting of the Democratic Party of Garland County (DPGC). “We are very pleased and honored to have these two candidates speak at our meeting,” said Mark A. Toth, DPGC Treasurer. “A good way to learn about a candidate is in a face to face setting, early in the campaign season, as they articulate their values and goals in contrast to their opponent’s voting record.”

Kallen Peret
Democratic candidate for
Arkansas State Representative District 24
Peret is a strong advocate for educational reform; she believes that Arkansas’ ranking as 49th in national assessments of the quality of public education is unacceptable. She is also fighting to protect Arkansas’ great outdoors and will work to make medical marijuana accessible now. Peret is the wife of a U.S. Marine and a mother to a young daughter, Isabelle.
Cortney McKee
Democratic candidate for
Garland County Justice of the Peace, District 9
Like all hardworking Americans, McKee understands that families must make careful choices budgeting their money and county government should practice the same fiscal responsibility.

In addition, Harold "Butch" Davis, the Democratic representative on the Garland County Election Commission, will answer questions about the upcoming September special election, the November General election and voting registration and the current voter I.D. law.
The DPGC’s monthly meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 15th, 2018, at the Headquarters of the Democratic Party of Garland County, 608 West Grand Avenue, Hot Springs, Arkansas. The doors will open at 5:00 pm and the meeting will start promptly at 5:30 pm. This free event is open to the public.
