Peggy Williams of Black Oak recently announced she is seeking Craighead County Quorum Court District 12 position.
"I have lived in the Eastern District of Craighead County all my life," Williams said. "I was born and raised at Caraway. I married Norman Williams 45 years ago, and we have made Black Oak our home. I am a member of Black Oak Baptist Church."
Williams formerly worked in management at American Greetings Corp. in Osceola for 15 years, at Black Oak Gin for five years and for Dowless Carpet Emporium for 34 years.
"I have served on the Central Democratic Committee for many years," Williams said. "I am in charge of two election polls, Caraway and Black Oak. In the past, I served as the City of Black Oak treasurer for 12 years. I have recently been appointed to the Arkansas Rural Development Grant Commission by Senator Paul Bookout.
"My husband Norman has been the mayor of Black Oak for over 25 years," Williams said. "I have worked to secure many grants for Black Oak.
"I am enjoying work on the Grant Commission, as it gives me the opportunity to help others get the much needed grant support for their cities, schools and organizations. I love helping others who are trying to make improvements in our area, and I feel I can be a great asset to the people in District 12. I am committed to hard work and have never been one to give up easily when something needs to be done.
"I hold many things important in my life - my God, my family, helping others, and the love of country music," Williams said.
