Mayor Frank Gilbert for Governor
"Mayor Frank" was one of the key leaders in pushing the state's term limits initiative, and he is choosing to term limit himself to two terms as the Mayor of Tull. There are lots of small town Mayors out there, but this guy is actually in Gov. Mike Beebe's league in terms of glibness and good 'ole boy charisma. I hope you get a chance to listen to this guy sometime. He's good. And in a year when the GOP is struggling to find someone to oppose "unstoppable killing machine Mike Beebe", maybe he is the guy you should vote for.
This was his message in a Constitution Party E-mail....
Fellow Constitution Party Supporter,
Hi, Mayor Frank Gilbert here. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and to tell you that I am considering running for Governor of Arkansas as a Constitution Party candidate.
I hope you will help me in that decision making process.
First, if you would email me back or call me (numbers redacted because this was for their list only) on my cell I’d love to talk to you about the future of our Party and where you would like to see it go. I will be open to anything that you wish me to know.
Second, I’d ask you to invest $50 in my campaign. Arkansas tax law allows you a tax credit of that amount on your return. If you make the donation before April 15th you can even claim the credit on THIS year’s return. After that time you must claim it on next year’s return. Either way, you get the money back on your taxes!
The initial step for the Constitution Party and any candidates it may run is a petition drive to get 10,000 signatures. Party leaders and others are working to that end right now. Once that process is successfully completed, we will be able to run candidates for state, district and local offices.
Your help with the petition drive will be a crucial first step toward giving Arkansas voters a real choice in elections this November and in years to come.
Because the campaign season is so close, there are things that need to done even before the petition drive begins. I sincerely hope you will invest your time and $50 in that process now!
Thanks for your consideration,
Frank GilbertMayor of Tull
