Former Mountain Home Parks and Recreation Director Billy D. Austin Officially Announces Candidacy for Mountain Home City Clerk for November 2022 election.
I have been married to Bonnie Austin for the past 46 years, and we have a son Justin who will be 44 in September. I am originally from Paragould, AR. I enlisted in the United States Army in August 1974. I served as the Army Recruiter here in Mountain Home from 1984-1988 and retired from the United States Army in 1994 in Fayetteville, AR.
In January 2000, I went to work for Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Department as a Sports Program Coordinator. I worked there until August 2007, when I joined the Parks and Recreation Department as Director for the City of Mountain Home and worked here at the Parks Department until June 30, 2022.
I have a genuine desire to serve the City of Mountain Home as the City Clerk, and I feel that my 14 Years and 10 Months of Public Service to the City of Mountain Home is a benefit to me, knowing the daily operating procedures and personnel. I am a very dependable person, and I genuinely do care about the City and the future of the City. I would like to become the next city clerk to help continue improving the city.
I would appreciate your vote in the November election.
