Ryburn, Mays to speak to SEARK Tea Party
Two local candidates for Arkansas State Representative will speak at the August 11 meeting of the Southeast Arkansas TEA Party. Sonya Ryburn, who is seeking the office of State Representative for District 9 and Patricia Mays, candidate for State Representative for District 10 will discuss their campaigns and answer questions. State Representatives Sheilla Lampkin and Mike Holcomb were also invited to speak, but neither responded to their invitations.
Sonya Ryburn is a lifelong resident of Monticello and has dedicated herself to helping solve the problems facing the people of Southeast Arkansas’ ninth district. She has been researching the issues and asking people to give her their concerns so that she will be better informed and prepared when she is elected
Patricia Mays, also a native of Arkansas and a graduate of Monticello High School, is an Industrial Engineer. She believes that Arkansas needs State Representatives who will vote to support the needs and beliefs of their constituents. She and Sonya Ryburn have spent the many months since they announced their candidacies meeting with various groups in their respective districts so they will know better how to serve the people when elected to the State House of Representatives.
The meeting, which will begin at 6:30 P.M., will be held at the Living Word Fellowship Church in the south end of the building which houses Cowboy’s Restaurant. The church is directly across the street from the Ryburn auto dealership on Hwy 425 South. The public is cordially invited to meet and speak to these two strong candidates. Refreshments will be served, and all are welcome to attend.
