Paragould City Councilman Farrell Gibson has announced his run for mayor of Paragould on social media.
Paragould Mayor Mike Gaskill announced in June that he is resigning effective at the end of the year so that a special election can be called to coincide with this year’s general election in November.
Gibson is currently on the city council representing Ward 4 position 1.
“As many have heard I have chose to run for Mayor of Paragould. I love serving the people and have for many years,” Gibson’s Facebook post read in part. “I have new ideas to help keep Paragould a safe place to live and keep our cost of living down. In the days to come I will start revealing my plans.”
Gibson is owner-operator of Terry’s Cafe in downtown Paragould.
