Johnny Rickman is announcing his run for District 2 Justice of the Peace on the Baxter County Quorum Court.
Rickman is a lifelong resident of Arkansas and has spent the majority of his career in civil service. He retired to Baxter County from Jonesboro just over 10 years ago for the wonderful lakes.
He has an impressive resume having worked for the City of Jonesboro, and in the Arkansas National Guard before retiring as a firefighter.
“As a retired firefighter, I am greatly concerned about the future of our rural fire departments. Of course, every JP should have the budget as a number one concern. I’m a strong supporter of our school system and safe schools for our families. In my career, I have seen that growth is contagious and not something we should fear but work to reap the benefits from. There’s been a lot of attention on our voting systems and the recent audits have given me the confidence that we do have election integrity in Baxter County,” said Rickman.
Rickman is a regular at City Council and Quorum Court meetings and said he believes that everything starts locally in government. Outside of work and volunteer service, Rickman enjoys chasing crappies, hunting, and spending time with family.
