JP Michael White Announces Bid for Re-Election to District 2


Michael White announces his bid for re-election to the Mississippi County Quorum Court as Justice of the Peace for District 2.

White was born and raised in Manila and continues to live there with his wife, Cindy. They have one daughter, Melanie, and her husband Darryl Conrad, and two grandchildren, Madison and Ryder. White retired as a volunteer firefighter for the Manila Fire Department after 32 years protecting the citizens of Manila and the surrounding area. He also served as a volunteer hunter safety instructor for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission for 16 years. In addition, he served on the Manila Airport Commission and as chairman of that Commission worked to triple the annual farm rent the city had been receiving.

White said, "I have faithfully served and worked hard for the citizens of Mississippi County for a number of years and I would like to continue to be of service, especially for my friends and neighbors of District 2. I have the most seniority of any JP currently serving on the Quorum Court and during my tenure, I have served on every major standing committee on the court. Currently, I serve on the Fire, Police, and Safety Committee, the Road and Bridge Committee, Planning and Development Committee, Emergency Committee, and I serve as chairman of the Finance Committee which prepares the County Budget and oversees County spending.

For the past eight years, I have worked as the Quorum Court "spear-head" for the $16 renovation project of the Blytheville County Courthouse. This project is a work in progress with a hopeful completion date two years out and I pray the voters will allow me to see this project through."
