Incumbent Mayor Jeff Crockett says he wants to sell Harrison to outside families as an ideal place to live but in order to do that, the city must focus on its housing:

Realtor Jerry Jackson’s plan is to promote Harrison as a retiree destination. He says over 10-thousand people a day are retiring and he wants to tap into that pipeline:

In addition to attracting retirees, Alderman Dan Sherrell would like to focus on bringing families to Harrison. He says he would like to see more career jobs created so those families will stay and help grow the economy:
