Jennifer Baker has announced that she will be running for re-election to the Mountain Home City Council for the Ward 2 Position 1 seat that she currently holds.
She had previously stated she would not seek re-election.
“For the last several months, I have stated that I would not run for re-election. What I did not anticipate is the sadness I would feel at not having the opportunity to serve as a Council member. And I have been encouraged by several community members to go ahead and file for re-election. There are so many exciting things going on in the City right now: the Community/Aquatic Center, the growth of the downtown district, the work at getting a second water intake on Lake Norfork, the Park improvements, the new fire station, just to name a few. With my years of experience and institutional knowledge, I want to continue to be involved in the growth of Mountain Home. Therefore, if the public will support me, I will be honored to serve another term.”
Jennifer has served 13 terms on the City Council and currently serves on the A & P Commission, the Personnel Committee, the Street Committee and is Chairman of the Water/Sewer Committee.
