The Arkansas House of Representatives has 100 Members, representing 100 separate districts statewide. It’s important you understand, your state representative works for you. As a constituent, your voice matters.
I have been to the Arkansas state capitol, I have been to Washington D.C. and there are paid lobbyists everywhere. There is BIG MONEY in politics. And yes, what has been true about America is even stronger today… YOUR VOICE MATTERS MORE THAN MONEY. Now, more than ever, politicians are listening to their constituents. They understand their job is on the line.
