The well-connected-white-man's club known as the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission got a new member today. Gov. Mike Beebe appointed Andrew Parker, a lawyer and director of governmental affairs (lobbyist) for the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce, to succeed Ty Patterson. Patterson served for 16 months by Beebe appointment after Rick Watkins resigned from the commission.

Parker, 37, worked for three years for Beebe as a liaison to state agencies, including Game and Fish. Earlier, he'd worked for Beebe when he was attorney general. He's a Little Rock native.

It would appear that Beebe will complete his eight-year run as most governors have, without appointing a woman or a minority commissioner.

From Beebe release:

"Andrew is one of our bright, up-and-coming Arkansans who has a lifelong love for the outdoors, is an avid hunter, and a conservationist, as well. He will continue the tradition of insuring the preservation of our natural bounty," the Governor said.

    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.
