In addition to my duties as State Representative I serve as Chaplain for Saline Memorial Hos- pice and Pastor of Saline Baptist Church in Tull. My wife Karen is a teacher of 33 years at Benton High School.

My commitment to you when reelected is to focus my energy in the following areas:

  • To continue to identify and expose areas of inefficiency and waste in state government agencies thus reducing the need for tax increases.
  • To continue to push for greater accountability for the spending within the state budget among all agencies.
  • To work in conjunction with administration to recruit high wage jobs to the state.
  • To protect family values.
  • To promote Saline County economically and as an area of family values.

To help me achieve these goals I would like to ask you to help in one of the following ways:

  • With a financial contribution.
  • With a willingness to volunteer in the event I should draw an opponent.

To assist me in either of these areas please contact me at:

Or call me at 501-840-3841.

I would like to thank you in advance for your support.
