Realtors endorse

Posted By on Wed, Apr 28, 2010 at 5:10 PM

The Arkansas Realtors Association has endorsed L.J. Bryant in the Democratic primary race for state land commissioner.


L.J. Bryant of Newport was chosen by the Arkansas Realtors Association PAC as the candidate that they would support for the vacated State Land Commissioner office.

All three Democrat Primary candidates possess Arkansas Real Estate licenses.  Bryant also owns a working farm in Poinsett County and three accounting and tax firms in Jonesboro. 

Bryant has promised to bring the most advanced technology available to manage state-owned properties. 

“Our state doesn’t even allow the use of credit cards to pay real estate taxes.  This is a simple courtesy that we should be offering to our citizens.  And just like several local police and court systems already do, the credit card service fee is paid by the landowner---so there is absolutely no cost to the state.

“Satellite Mapping is another example of how we can streamline and enhance the marketing of delinquent lands, which ultimately mean more funds for local governments and public schools.  It’s definitely time to move Arkansas into the 21st century.”

Mr. Bryant’s type of fresh thinking no doubt played an important role in the interview process with the Arkansas Realtors Association political action committee.  His insight to the proper use of technology as a tool for improving the office of State Land Commissioner is a welcome attitude in government.
