Meeks to Kick-Off Campaign in New District

Conway, AR – Arkansas State Representative David Meeks will formally launch his bid for reelection on Tuesday, August 16th at Colton’s Steakhouse in Conway.

“Central Arkansas is a special place for me and my family,” Meeks said. “It is where I met and married my spouse, built the closest friendships, and started a trek towards working for a greater Arkansas.”

Meeks, 39 and almost three years married to Naomi McGee Meeks, will now run to represent House District 70 due to the lines drawn in Arkansas’ newly redistricted map.

This past legislative session, he represented District 46 and was named Arkansas’ Best Legislator for his work.

Mark Moore of Arkansas Watch explained their decision to name Meeks as the number one representative on a bi-partisan list of top ten: “What sets David Meeks apart is an attitude of service…His style does not display the smallest trace of self-promotion. He does the right thing, for the right reason. He communicates with the grassroots better than probably any other legislator…Meeks is true to his name. He has not a trace of haughtiness as he keeps the common people informed. He even deals with criticism with grace and discretion. That means he has the tools needed to get even better. Meeks listens to us, and there are some other legislators who ought to listen to him.”

Meeks has vowed to return to the state house and fight for the issues he has always stood for.

“I will continue to fight for a stronger economy and against negative influences on small businesses and job creators in Arkansas,” said Meeks. “This means less excessive regulation and more tax breaks for the hard-working citizens of our state.

“Most relevant to this area, I will continue to fight against any severance tax increase and will work to prevent Arkansans from being forced to purchase government-based health insurance—something I pushed for in the Healthcare Freedom Act this past session.

“Each day that I served in the Arkansas State House, I considered it an honor to work on behalf of the good people of Conway, and I humbly ask for their support in allowing me to return.”

The public is invited to celebrate Meeks’ kickoff on Tuesday, August 16th from 6:00pm - 8:00pm at Colton’s Steakhouse located at 120 East Oak St in Conway.
