READER POLL: Prison not welcome in Clark County

In response to Hempstead County citizens’ opposition to erecting a state prison in Blevins, we asked Clark Countians if they would be supportive of building a state prison in their area.

The poll was up for two weeks with 85 website visitors participating in the poll. Here are the results:

Yes — I would welcome a state prison in Clark County
37 votes

No — Take your prison elsewhere
48 votes

85 total votes

NEW POLL: With DeGray Lake Resort State Park reporting record revenue and attendance in 2022, we’d like to know how often local residents visit the lake. Find the poll on our homepage (https://arkadelphian.com) and cast your vote.

  1. Funny how Republicans want to build more prisons bur the redest countries don’t want it in their back yards

  2. I didn’t see the poll so I didn’t vote but if I had I would have voted for it. Yes.

  3. I’m surprised Clark County wouldn’t be interested in this opportunity. I guess losing the business of that Chinese paper company didn’t phase these people looking to bring more jobs to the area.

  4. I don’t blame any of these people in either county bring more jobs that’s a joke they hired an out of state medical staff when they should have hired people right here in ark and why build a new prison when they need to take care of the prison’s that we already have they are in bad need of repairs and to expect a county to buy the land and then turn around and just give it to them l say if you want to build a prison then you can buy the land
