Leave The Deep Woods OFF At Home

Woodrow Anderson III likens himself to a pesky mosquito in his campaign against 3rd District Congressman John Boozman. His only chance is if he is carrying the West Nile Virus.

Anderson would like to be the next congressman from this district, but knows he has little chance. What this campaign is about is name recognition. If he runs, people will hear his name over and over. The idea is to have people remember that name for his next campaign, whatever that might be.


Boozman has been a solid representative of the 3rd District for years. Of all of the politicos I have met from either side of the aisle, John Boozman is the most unassuming person. You feel as though he would be just as comfortable going back into his practice as he would going back to D.C. More so, even. Boozman comes across as someone doing this job because he has been asked to, not because it is something owed to him, as say a Marion Berry or a Mike Beebe.

Very few politicians stay in the game this long and remain as humble as John Boozman. Impressively, he has surrounded himself with family and staff that are much the same as John in this respect.

No disrespect to Mr. Anderson, but to send John Boozman home at this time would be a step backwards for the 3rd District and for the entire state of Arkansas.

In the interest of full disclosure, I served as an intern in Congressman Boozman's Fort Smith office in the Fall of 2003.
