Odies Wilson III.

Mays Property Management Director of Operations

ODIES WILSON III HAS BEEN active politically on the local and national levels for years, including involvement as state coordinator of Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Coalition.

He worked with the Walter Mondale-Geraldine Ferraro presidential campaign in 1984 and with the Michael Dukakis-Lloyd Bentsen campaign in 1988. When Jackson decided not to run for president last year, Wilson worked with Bill Clinton's campaign.

He serves on Future-Little Rock's economic development, housing and community enhancement committees. He was co-chairman of the Committee For the Right Change, which succeeded in getting Little Rock voters to approve a change in government last month. He has been mentioned as a possible candidate for mayor.

"I think people in Little Rock are now developing a respect for other people's views, even if you don't agree with them," says Wilson, 44. "And I think this Future-Little Rock process has helped to accomplish that."

Mays Property Management manages properties throughout Arkansas that are subsidized by Housing and Urban Development. Wilson concentrates on the maintenance operation and contract labor procurement.

He is first vice president of the McClellan Community Development Corp. in southwest Little Rock and is a member of the Greater Little Rock Chamber of Commerce's Industrial Development Committee. He serves on the board of directors of the Little Rock Boys Club and the Downtown Partnership.
