District 5

John Horner, Justice of the Peace

I am honored to have been appointed to fill the vacancy in the JP position for District 5 in 2016, and grateful to be able to give back to the community that has been my family’s home for so long. I am proud to be part of the family-owned building materials and concrete company, C.J. Horner Company, Inc. which was established in 1907.

About District 5

District 5 is tucked in between the north shore of Lakes Hamilton and Catherine and US 70/27 (the MLK Bypass). It has a boot heel that extends north on Hidden Ferry to include Hot Springs’ most popular tourist attraction, Oaklawn race track. District 5 includes both city and county residents.
