Koenig the Republican

Richard Drake's fine Fayetteville blog, Street Jazz, turns to next year's mayoral election with the question, "Is Jeff Koenig of the Fayetteville Economic Development Council considering a run for mayor of Fayetteville? When you run into three people in one day speculating about the matter, well, that could just be idle speculation."

Koenig was in the news this week when the Fayetteville Public Education Foundation announced the 2007 inductees to the Fayetteville Schools Hall of Honor. He has been director of the FHS Lady Bulldog Classic and was a member of the Fayetteville School Board from 1991 to 1995.

Serving on the school board is not Koenig's only political experience. He has been a campaign contributor, giving more than $6,000 to political action committees for business special interests, Republican political candidates, and the Republican Party. In the past four years, his political contributions have included:

2/26/07 Citizens 4 Fayetteville [Against Impact Fees], $1,000

2/12/07 Republican National Committee, $500

4/12/06 Bill Pritchard ® for State Senate, $2,000

10/31/06 John Boozman ® for Congress, $300

01/12/06 Doug Kuntz ® for Representative, $2,000

9/2/04 Sarah Agee ® for State Senate, $500

7/27/04 Arvest Bank Group PAC, $300

7/11/05 Republican National Committee, $300

12/27/05 Republican National Committee, $300

4/12/04 Republican National Committee, $200
