Posted By on Thu, Jan 24, 2013 at 12:13 PM

From the governor's office:

Governor Beebe today named Preston Scroggin of Vilonia as Director of the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission and Ricky Belk of Alma as Director of the Arkansas Labor Department.

Scroggin, 46, is currently the Faulkner County Judge and President of the County Judges' Association of Arkansas. A fifth-generation cattle rancher, Scroggin grew up on farms with chicken houses, as well. He also served in the Arkansas House of Representatives and on the Vilonia City Council. The Commission’s previous director, Steve Bryles, passed away in December.

Belk, 56, currently serves on the Arkansas Workforce Investment Board. Since 2005, he has been the Secretary-Treasurer for the Arkansas AFL-CIO. Previously, Belk also served on the boards of the Fort Smith United Way and the Alma Community Outreach Center. Belk replaces James Salkeld, who retired earlier this month.

Beebe also announced that he is appointing Shelia Vaught of Little Rock to the University of Central Arkansas Board of Trustees. Vaught's appointment expires on January 14, 2020; she replaces Rush Harding on the board.

In addition, Beebe has reappointed Ron Rhodes of Cherokee Village to a second term on the Arkansas State University Board of Trustees. Rhodes' appointment expires on January 14, 2018.

Beebe has also reappointed Leigh Whiteside of Russellville to the Arkansas Tech University Board of Trustees. Whiteside's appointment expires on January 14, 2018.

  • Another made-up Republican attack: The Saline County socialists are coming to take your business

    The latest in bogus Republican political attacks comes from Saline County, where Steve Lux, chairman of the county Republican Committee, has sent a letter warning members of the Benton-Bryant Chamber of Commerce that a progressive group working to elect Democrats in the county is allied with a socialist group that wants nothing less than "the elimination of private business." This is, of course, nonsense.
