Plumlee announces MH mayoral exploratory committee

A second potential candidate for Mountain Home mayor has announced he has formed an exploratory committee. City Clerk Brian Plumlee says his exploratory committee will consist of eight to 10 members who will be gathering additional information from Mountain Home citizens as he considers his candidacy.

Plumlee says feedback about his potential run for office has been very good so far. He says considering the race is a big decision, one he does not take lightly. Plumlee says his committee plans to move quickly and will have an official decision in the next few weeks.

The 32-year-old Plumlee has served as Mountain Home City Clerk for eight years under two mayoral administrations. He is a member of the city's administration committee, and he has filled in numerous times this past year as mayor pro-tem at council meetings for Mayor Joe Dillard.

During Plumlee's tenure, he has won the volunteer of the community award six of the past seven years. He is an active member of the Baxter County Republican Party, current chairman of the Bob Davis Veteran Center, active in the Mountain Home High School mentorship program and current president of the Red, White, and Blue Festival.

Plumlee is a 2004 graduate of Mountain Home High School, where he was selected class president.

While Plumlee has formed an exploratory committee as he considers entering the race, Councilwoman Nancy Osmon has announced she is seeking the position of Mountain Home Mayor.

Mayor Joe Dillard announced last week he will not be seeking re-election.
