What it means | Roberts, 61, of Conway, is an insurance agent who ran on three issues: improving roads and traffic; creating more small businesses and jobs; and protecting the citizens’ property rights. Roberts now moves on to the November election to take on long-time Councilman James Frazier.

What they said | “I worked my behind off. I’ve been working 12, 15 hours a day, sometimes 16 hours a day. Putting up signs, calling people on the phone... I’m still going to work hard. I don’t have any money, so I can’t outspend [James Frazier], but I can outwork him.”
