Mayor Perrin and Councilman Chris Moore presented businessman Clay Young with a Key to the City on Tuesday at the Municipal Center. Young, who was honored by President Trump at the White House last Friday for allowing his tenants to skip several months’ rent at the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak, said he was honored to address the President. Young told the President and a crowd assembled in the Rose Garden that he recalled the kindness of others, including Mayor Perrin, over the course of 20 years developing in downtown Jonesboro, and simply wanted to pay it forward. Perrin said Young’s act made him very proud and is exemplary of Jonesboro residents taking care of one another during these difficult times.
