JOIN BETH FOR A BETTER FUTURE
For Washington County
I'M BETH COGER
I'm your Justice of the Peace for District 9
I am a wife, mother of two, and grandmother of two. I moved to Washington County in 2015 and became involved in county government shortly thereafter. I am a retired paralegal and co-founder of Arkansas Justice Reform Coalition. I have advocated continually for strict county budget oversight, better pay for our hard-working county employees, justice system reform, data-based decision making, and transparency in OUR Washington County government.
I am loving my job serving on the court and hearing from so many of you. It’s even fun, though very frustrating at times! I believe that I and all JPs represent everyone in Washington County, not just those within District 9, because every decision we make has an impact on many people across the county.
If you have questions or need additional information about anything in this newsletter, please reach out to me.
I always respond.

I ran for Washington County Quorum Court because I want to see us use the wonderful resources we have here in Washington County to make our community better for everyone. I want to see our Quorum Court work together to make our beautiful community better for everyone. We can do hard stuff when we work together.
STRONG BUDGET OVERSIGHT
One of the most important jobs of the Quorum Court is to be good stewards of your tax dollars. It takes money to keep our community going, and we’re one of the wealthiest counties in the state. We have the resources, we just have to decide what our priorities are.
DATA BACKED DECISIONS
Let's move away from voting on party lines and vote using facts. I will never vote on an issue if I haven't done my research or heard from the community. I will base my votes on data, facts, evidence, and proven strategies that are already working.
TRANSPARENT AND RESPONSIVE LEADERSHIP
We, as elected officials, have an obligation to continually share information with the community. Government works best when the community is informed and involved. I will work to increase the use of technology to improve transparency and accountability.
The full QC meets the third Thursday of every month.
Join me at the next Quorum Court Meeting
There is a 15-minute public comment period where the public may address the court and bring forth any concerns they may have. These minutes are valuable and we need to hear from you! That’s how we learn and can gather much valuable information from the community.
Please attend County Quorum Court meetings. Believe me, your support will be much appreciated.
