Mountain Home, AR (PRWEB) February 25, 2010
Ben Ponder, a businessman and educator from Mountain Home, will formally announce his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday, February 23, at noon on the front steps of the historic Old College Hall in Mountain Home. Ponder is running as a Democrat for the First Congressional District seat now occupied by Rep. Marion Berry (D-Gillett), who is retiring at the end of this term. Ponder plans to bring a fresh voice of reason, vision, creativity, and action to a Congress now mired in party line standoffs and petty bickering. The primary elections in Arkansas are scheduled for May 18.
