"Economic development and job creation are number one," Joe Smith said.
"I want to make public safety number one," Tracy Steele said.
"I want to go and work for you," John Parker said.
"I have the experience to cut expenses," Mark Clinton said.
Joe Smith, Tracy Steele, John Parker, and Mark Clinton share their platforms with the North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce. While it's four different men who hope to hold the city's top post, it seems to be jobs they all say they will bring to the city to make it a regional economic hub.
"The ball is rolling. It won't take a genius to get on the train to ride this thing through. It's already in place," Parker said.
Parker wants to continue what current mayor Pat Hays has already started.
So does Joe Smith, who's worked with Hays to bring jobs to the city for more than twenty years.
"They're confident in the local government. They're confident in what we've been doing and it's a great place for their employees to live," Smith said.
Tracy Steele says as mayor, he'd make sure all parts of the city, not just one particular area, get jobs.
"We're close. We're twin cities with Little Rock. That gives us more opportunity to grow and recruit industry downtown, and but throughout the city of North Little Rock," Steele said.
But Mark Clinton said to bring jobs, he would cut taxes.
"If we were to come a lower sales tax city, we will be able to draw more industry. If we were to ratchet our electric rates down, we would become more attractive to business," Clinton said.
