4/2/22:  Reverend Jesse Jackson Inspires Arkansas Leaders


It's not every day that you get to spend time with a civil rights legend. This weekend the Reverend Jesse Jackson was in Arkansas, and he blessed us with his time.

We were in Hot Springs for a state Democratic Party meeting, and Rev. Jackson rallied us around voter registration efforts and getting Arkansans out to vote. He was inspirational, thanked me for running for office, and applauded me for not giving up. It reminded me of the first time I met him while I was in high school - he applauded us for not giving up then, too.

Afterward, some other candidates for elected office and I took Rev. Jackson and his team to Lindsey's for lunch, one of our local favorites. Rev. Jackson is a man who just keeps showing up. I admire his career and his advocacy for fairness. In a time when things are bitterly divided, I also admire his goodness and compassion for everybody. Let's follow his lead and keep showing up for Arkansas.


5/5/22:  Jannie Cotton Meets with Sherwood & Jacksonville Community Members


It's been a busy week on the campaign trail! This week, I met with the residents of Jacksonville at North Pulaski Community Park. It was so great to hear voters' concerns, introduce myself, and answer questions.


Everybody I spoke with is on board with this campaign's message:  that Sherwood & Jacksonville's schools can lead the state, that our district can create new good-paying jobs, and that we can do more to create access to healthcare and mental healthcare services for our area's seniors and veterans.

It was also so meaningful to me to gather this week with friends and neighbors for the Sherwood Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast. 


Here in Sherwood and Jacksonville, faith, hope, and love bring us together. They always have. I’m grateful for this event that brought people together.


3/27/22:  Jannie's 2022 Campaign Kick-off was a huge success!


Thank you to the event hosts and co-hosts (listed below) for throwing a spectacular launch party. And thank you to Bennett's Restaurant in Sherwood for hosting us for the evening. The event was full of great food, fellowship, music, and laughter.

As Senator Joyce Elliott said in her closing remarks, "The time is now for this community to move forward." With your help in coming months, we're going to do just that.
