Carlos Chicas, a Spanish-language sports announcer, said in a news release on Tuesday (July 22) he is seeking a seat on the Rogers City Council.

Chicas is seeking a four-year term on the Ward 4, Position 1 seat held by Bob Goodwin, who is not running for re-election in November.

Chicas is set to file for office on Friday at 2 p.m.

A John Brown University graduate who works in the Rogers school district in special education, Chicas said if elected he will help promote tourism, help attract more businesses to Rogers and help the Historic Downtown District grow.

He also said he wants to “use incentives to draw more industry to the town and region.””I want to promote a positive life experience for all who live in this beautiful and vibrant city,” he said in the news release.

Chicas is a reporter and anchor at Telemundo, a Spanish-languge television network, he said in the news release. A former professional soccer player, he is also known as the Spanish voice of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks.

Chicas and his wife, Deysi, have three children.

“I want to show through service and positive community leadership that I am first and foremost an American and that I can be an excellent councilman,” he said.

      Exactly. And you can kiss the “beautiful and vibrant city” goodbye if the “tourists” keep invading the country in droves and make their way up here. It’s only a matter of time then when Northwest Arkansas becomes an overcrowded hive of crime, decay, and poverty.

    Xenophobe much? Clearly Mr Chicas is a hardworking, loyal member of the community. No need to be afraid, be happy you have good people who want to make a difference.College educated, special education teacher, father of two, has a vision, but the only thing you see is his heritage. Shameful.
