I want to thank everyone who supported our campaign. We could not have made it this far without your contributions and hard work. We have enjoyed meeting new people, making new friends, and working with old friends. At the end of the day,we all still live in a very special community, and we will all work to improve Fayetteville in our own ways.
I entered this race to give people a choice between simply maintaining the status quo or having a progressive and productive vision for FayettevillIe. We have entered a new paradigm where we are not the presumptive leader in Northwest Arkansas anymore. We will have to work harder and smarter to be attractive to the types of businesses and creative people that will help us sustain our high quality of life and provide new opportunity. We have to continue to invest in the arts and culture, parks and trails, infrastructure and real public transit. Regardless of the outcome today, we will need to commit to these investments if we want to fulfill our potential.
It has been an honor to help bring positive change to our fine city. We appreciate the opportunity to make our corner of the world a little better.
If you would like to join our watch party come to Fresco Cafe, just off the Square next to Bliss Cupcakes, Tuesday evening.
Thank you, Fayetteville!
Northwest Arkansas Times quotes
“Without vision, a community can function but it won’t seize opportunity. Without vision, there’s no such thing as moving Fayetteville forward unless one is only measuring the passage of time.”
“We know this: Had Coody not been successful in his eight years as mayor, much of what Jordan touts wouldn’t have existed.”
“Coody believes in Fayetteville, too, and knows any serious positive change for the future can sometimes rock the boat. The only way not to rock the boat is to stand still. Coody will tackle the downtown parking that has changed the experience of one of Fayetteville’s greatest assets for the worse.”
“Coody believes Fayetteville’s place in history has never been cemented by maintaining the status quo.”
“Fayetteville deserves leadership that seizes, or even creates, opportunity.”
