He's Jonesboro tycoon Wallace Fowler.


LITTLE ROCK – Governor Beebe has named Wallace Fowler of Jonesboro to the Arkansas State Police Commission.

"Wallace has sought time and again to give back to the State that has given him so much," Governor Beebe said.  "He has always had a deep respect for the Arkansas State Police and will serve our people well on the Commission."

Fowler, 73, is Chairman and C.E.O. of Liberty Bank of Arkansas and Chairman of Fowler Foods, both in Jonesboro.  He previously served on the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission (now the AEDC) in the 1980s.   A longtime Jonesboro resident, Fowler and his wife Jama are involved in numerous charity and nonprofit organizations in Northeast Arkansas.

The appointment expires January 14, 2016.  Fowler replaces Warren Dupwe, also of Jonesboro.

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
