Waldron native Jeanetta Byford, 56, has announced her candidacy for the office of Scott County Assessor. Byford is the daughter of the late Kennith Elmore and Janie Elmore, who also resides in Waldron. She and her husband Clinton have been married 39 years. The couple has two daughters, Jill Byford and Missy Williams; one son-in-law, Michael Williams and five grandchildren, Brandon Byford, 19, McKenzie Cooper, 13, Shalee Byford, 9, McKenna Williams, 9 and Max Williams, 2.
“I have been so honored for people to come to me and let me know they support me in this election,” stated Byford. She has worked hard spreading the word throughout Scott County about her campaign.
Byford has worked at the Waldron Golf Course for the past two years and serves on the Hawkins Cemetery Board. She has owned and operated three small businesses including Corner Mart, Main Street Video and Parks Grocery Store. Additionally, she served as the chair for the Waldron Housing Authority, a manager of Family Dollar and on the Parks Clean-Up Committee.
“We need a change and I want people to vote for me because they know me,” explained Byford. “They know I have a good work ethic. If someone has a problem, I want to work with them until it is resolved or find someone who can. I’m concerned about the deeds getting behind and why the tax rates vary from property to property.”
Byford concluded that if you want to see a change in the way things are handled, you should vote for her in November. “I am the candidate that can and will make changes to the assessors office. I want to be an Assessor for the people!”

Jennetta is retired and is 60+. Terri can retire and has been in office long enough she too is 60+. It’s time to give the jobs to the next generation that NEED iT and DESERVE it! Why give a 2nd pay check to one that has enough money and should retire and one that is already retired with a good living? KIMBERLEY LANE!! will get the job done promptly, and accurately as she has the knowledge and won’t just take the position as an extra pay check or an entitlement. She sees the concerns of the people that ARE NOT GETTING met in the office as she works under Terri Churchill. Kim Lane is best for the job and the people!
Jennetta has zero experience!

Sally you’re ignorant read the article and get a brain. If someone is working they earn the paycheck no matter their age or if they have “enough money” or “living good”. Good thing an IQ test isn’t required to vote because I’d bet money “Sally” wouldn’t have a vote. Ignorance is the lack of knowledge and “Sally” is clearly ignorant.
