1/4

I come from a proud family that taught me the value of hard work. I have lived a blessed life in Fayetteville through hard work and luck. I want to ensure everyone enjoys living and visiting our great city. The three pillars of my platform will help keep Fayetteville a great place and provide everyone the ability to find their voice.

Campaign Platform

 

SUSTAINABILITY

Sloan supports the 2017 Energy Action Plan approved by the City Council. It is important the city be a leader in reducing its energy use and waste diversion from the landfill while being prudent with taxpayers' money. It is also very important to make land use decisions that are considerate to already established neighborhoods while not leaving a tax burden on future generations. 

What has Sloan Scroggin accomplished!

During Sloan's first term the city added solar panels to the wastewater treatment plants bringing 70% of energy usage at city buildings to come from clean sources. Currently City Council is discussing energy efficiency upgrades to bring clean energy usage percentage it up to 73%. Sloan also supported the decision to start water quality studies for lake Fayetteville so one day residents and tourist can safely swim in there. 

What will Sloan work on next?

Sloan will continue the work to make Lake Fayetteville a safe place to swim. This will involve a multiple year project with stream design work. He will add a city employee to make sure developers are doing all they can to protect our steamways and prevent flooding our residence. Unmitigated grading creates many pollutants that make their way into our stream and waterways. He will push to add more solar panels to bring the city buildings to 100% clean energy.

SAFETY

As the city grows, it is important that the police and fire departments receive the resources needed to keep the city safe. Safety is not just professional help after an accident has happened. It is important that we design our streets to slow down traffic so children can safely play around their neighborhood. We need safe trails for people to travel on for both recreational use and commuting to work. A functioning greenway not only makes our city enjoyable, but it is also a necessity for those that travel the greenway to work and get necessities. To keep the greenway safe, I support lights along the path where it is missing and dedicated bike cops that would travel the trails to make sure people are safe.

What has Sloan Scroggin accomplished?

​Fayetteville broke ground on the public safety campus, several fire stations were added, and two trail cops were added to the park and trail system. Sloan pushed for additional funding so SROs could receive more training in social work and counseling. Two social workers were added to the police force to find alternatives to incarceration. Sloan wrote a resolution pushing landlords to keep their units habitual. 

“People cannot get ahead if they are constantly sick because of where they live.”

What will Sloan work on next?

Even though two trail cops were added recently, there is a need for more, especially at Walker Park. Officers with training in social work and counseling are needed to help the growing unhoused community members of Fayetteville. The Crisis Stabilization Unit must reopen, and social workers and counselors are needed for residents. Sloan will continue to push and vote FOR safe street designs and to work to make sure places are safe for renters. Arkansas has the worst tenant-landlord laws in the country, and renters need protection at the local level.

SUCCESS

Even though employment rates and wages are back up, there are many families that are struggling to keep up with inflation. Sloan supports the success of our citizens by working with groups like the Chamber of Commerce, Startup Junkie, and the Northwest Arkansas Council to create the jobs people need with degrees and credentials they already have. By bringing the jobs Fayetteville there is less traffic which means a safer and more sustainable city!

What has Sloan Scroggin accomplished!

Sloan has continued to support Startup Junkie, Northwest Arkansas Council, and the Chamber of Commerce making sure we get high paying jobs here so people can obtain the individual success they seek. Sloan also supported the many suggestions coming from the economic vitality department at the City, like the Outdoor Refreshment Area (O.R.A.) which helped many restaurants survive the last few years.

What will Sloan work on next?

With the great resignation, many people are seeking meaningful work and many businesses are left short staffed. The people looking for new jobs will need new training for their jobs to perform well. The positions left need assistance to fill them. An example of much needed staff and programs like UpskillNWA are training the next generation of nurses. Sloan will push to make sure programs like this stay funded so these much-needed services stay filled.
