Mountain Home Police Chief Eddie Griffin has announced his run for JP Roger Steele’s seat on the Baxter County Quorum Court.
Steele is not seeking re-election next year.
Griffin is running as a Republican and if elected, will continue the county’s tradition of having a MHPD officer on the court. Baxter County Judge Kevin Litty served on the court while working as an officer for MHPD before becoming county judge.
Griffin was appointed as police chief for MHPD in 2021 after serving as the assistant police chief under Mountain Home City Councilman Carry Manuel.
