About Marvin Day
Efficient Leadership. Improved Infrastructure. Transparent Budgeting.
Marvin’s Plan for Craighead County
Marvin will create a long-range planning committee that prepares for future infrastructure needs throughout the county. This will create a more accurate assessment of future expenses so that budgeting can be done without placing an undo burden on taxpayers. Additionally, he will ask all county officials to combine their purchasing power to save money on office needs and supplies.
This starts with completing the concrete bridge program, which will improve standards across the county. Marvin will focus on improving the quality of the existing road network by using his experience to ensure cost effective solutions that match needs. He will work closely with cities to improve drainage and streets.
Encouraging better communication and cooperation, Marvin will maintain an open door policy with all elected officials, county employees, and citizens of Craighead County. He plans to talk regularly with legislators from the area and will host a monthly breakfast for all county elected officials.
Working with the Sheriff’s office, Marvin will improve security at the Courthouse and in all county offices. He will find the problem areas that hinder response times for emergency personnel and focus on providing remedies that will keep Craighead County safe.
Marvin believes the county can help spur economic development by ensuring county roads and services are top notch. He will be a strong advocate for projects that will benefit Craighead County and all of Northeast Arkansas.
