Preacher backs Wallace

Posted By on Mon, Mar 29, 2010 at 1:52 PM

Given the Republican votes in western Little Rock, there's some value to the endorsement of Republican congressional candidate Scott Wallace by Robert Lewis. Lewis was a founding pastor of the Fellowship Bible megachurch and is also founder of the Men's Fraternity.

WALLACE NEWS RELEASE


SCOTT WALLACE CAMPAIGN ANNOUNCES THE ENDORSEMENT OF ROBERT LEWIS
Author and Founder of Men’s Fraternity

Robert Lewis: "I am excited to endorse Scott Wallace as my representative for the 2 Congressional District in Arkansas. Scott is a man of real-world, business experience with a heart to serve—not himself—but the greater interests of the people of Arkansas. A man of strong character, proven leadership, and Arkansas family values, I believe Scott would be ideal to represent the 2 District. I also believe he would serve “we the people” with honor and distinction. That’s why he has my wholehearted support."

Scott Wallace:  “I simply cannot tell you how humbled and blessed I am to have the support of Robert Lewis. He is a true leader and one of the most respected men in Arkansas. Robert’s ministries have touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world and his current work continues to do the same. He has been a blessing to through Men’s Fraternity, as he has given men a new direction to become better fathers, husbands and servants. The faithfulness that he lives in Christ service has been a big influence on my life and I am thankful to have him as a friend, advisor and supporter.”

Scott Wallace is 48 years old and a lifelong resident of Central Arkansas. Scott attended Catholic High School and the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Scott has been a small business owner in central Arkansas for over 22 years. He is the owner of Bruno's Little Italy, a legendary restaurant in Little Rock. He currently owns two other business ventures and has employed hundreds of Arkansans over many years. As such he understands the challenges small businesses (which are responsible for most of the job creation in our economy) face every day. Scott gives his time to numerous charitable organizations in Central Arkansas and currently serves on the boards of the Union Rescue Mission/Dorcas House, the Arkansas State Police Foundation and The Arkansas Motor Vehicle Commission. Scott is a volunteer reserve Deputy Sheriff in Pulaski County and has spent thousands of hours completing training (at his own time and expense) and patrolling Pulaski County to help keep it safe. In previous years Scott has served on the Arkansas Tobacco Control Board and several other charity boards. Scott enjoys playing golf and riding his Harley. Scott and his family are active in the Summit Church in North Little Rock and Christ is the guiding influence in his life. He resides in Little Rock with his wife Tanja and their four daughters.
