My Name is Derek Sandlin and I am happy to announce my Candidacy for Mayor of Mount Ida. 
I am 42 years old. I am a life long resident of Mount Ida. All of my adult life I have held positions of employment where I worked with the public in some capacity. Over the course of my working life I have been the low man at some places and someone with a management type role as well.
The past 2 years I have been employed at Ardot. I have learned a great deal about equipment maintenance, road maintenance and things the Mayor of Mount Ida should be familiar with.
For the past 5 years I have owned and operated one of the largest High School Fishing Tournament Organizations in Arkansas. I have dealt with people from all over Arkansas. I have learned about planning, organization, and dealing with a budget.
I have also been active in Mount Ida’s Youth Sports Programs as a coach for 6 years. I volunteer as the Announcer for Mount Ida High School Football. I am also a father of a 6 year old son.
I believe I am well qualified to be your next Mayor. I promise to be a Mayor who is courteous to our Citizens. I will always be organized. I will be a mayor that will be there for our Citizens and use the resources we have to best help our Citizens and the City of Mount Ida. I would take great pride in being the Mayor of Mount Ida for many years.
Mount Ida is my home. It always has been and always will be. I would truly be honored to be the next Mayor of Mount Ida. I hope to have your support next November.
