Karen Ray is at work, the Arkansas Republican Party wants you to know, as the RPA's executive director. News release on jump.


Little Rock – The Republican Party of Arkansas (RPA) is proud to welcome Karen Ray back to Arkansas as the Executive Director of the Republican Party.

Karen has already begun the work for a successful election in 2008 by spending her first week meeting with staff and volunteers around the state.  Karen has already raised $10,000 in contributions and was a featured speaker at the Arkansas Federation of Republican Women - 26th Biennial Convention in Rogers, Arkansas.

Her main focuses over the next six months will be recruiting and developing candidates, strengthening county committees, and working to increase the visibility of the Party within the state of Arkansas. 

Karen is scheduled to attend three upcoming Lincoln Day Dinners (Boone, Cleburne, and Washington), speak at two Republican Women’s luncheons, the Central Arkansas Republican Club, the Van Buren County Committee and will attend the RNC State Chairman’s Meeting in Columbia, South Carolina.  Karen is planning overnight visits to each Congressional district this summer to visit with candidates, volunteers, and the media.

“We are delighted to have Karen serving in this leadership role,” said Gilbert Baker, outgoing Chairman of the RPA.  “Karen’s first week has been very successful for the RPA and we are encouraged by her enthusiasm and work ethic.”

Karen was selected as the Executive Director by the Executive Committee of the RPA at a meeting on March 17, 2007.  She assumed the role on May 1, 2007.
