Wayne Haver Files To Run For Fort Smith Mayor

FORT SMITH (KFSM) — Former Southside High School Principal Wayne Haver has filed to run in the Fort Smith mayoral race. His filing just 90 minutes ahead of Thursday’s (May 31) noon deadline creates a three-way race – if all filings are verified – for the post.

Rep. George McGill, D-Fort Smith, and University of Arkansas at Fort Smith student Luis Andrade previously filed for the mayoral job.

The three candidates will go up against each other in the primary on August 14.

The two winners of that primary will be on the ballot for the November general election.

Haver retired as Southside principal on April 20 after more than 48 years with the school district, with 36 years as principal.
