The speaker's shoes

Posted By on Tue, May 19, 2009 at 12:32 PM

Who'll succeed term-limited state Rep. Robbie Wills? Steve Magie, a Conway ophthalmologist and Democrat, says he intends to try.


Steve Magie kicks off his campaign for State House District 46 Tuesday evening
with family, friends and supporters at Centennial Country Club in Conway. The
ophthalmologist is seeking the Democratic nomination to replace Rep. Robbie
Wills, who is term limited.
“I believe Conway is one of the best places in Arkansas to live and raise and
family because of the shared values of this community,” said Magie. “I will
demonstrate those values of hard work and straightforward respect to continue
the exemplary representation of our area has had under Speaker Wills.”
WHO: Steve Magie
WHAT: District 46 State House Campaign kickoff
WHEN: May 19, 2009
5 p.m.

1600 Centennial Club Drive
Conway, Ark.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
