Lanette R. Frazier announces bid for Pine Bluff City Council


I am excited to announce my candidacy for Pine Bluff City Council, representing my neighbors in Ward 3. This decision comes after careful consideration, leaving me with a genuine desire to do all that I can for a city I love. 

I relocated to Pine Bluff, Arkansas in August 2005. I worked for the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) until an opportunity opened for me to work at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) in the Agriculture, Fisheries, and Human Sciences Dean’s Office.

In 2008, I had the honor of working for the Mayor’s Office under the historical administration of Mayor Carl Redus, Jr., the City’s first African American Mayor. This assignment was the segway for me to eventually serve the City’s next two historical administrations: Mayor Debbie Hollingsworth (the City’s second female mayor) and Mayor Shirley Washington, (the first African American female to lead the city). 

During these times, I gained invaluable insight about the city. I realized my city had potential for greatness.

Living in Pine Bluff for almost 17 years, I have cultivated relationships within my community and surrounding areas. Serving the City as a Councilmember will give me a greater avenue to use this experience to bring about greatness

Daily, I work with wonderful people to bring about hope, unity, and a better future for the people here. I offer my work within the community as a testament of my diligence to improve the City and by serving my neighbors in Ward 3. I look forward to a brighter future within our beloved City of Pine Bluff. 

I welcome the opportunity to serve because I believe the City of Pine Bluff has a bright future. Working together, we can reach our full potential.
