ABC board gets two new members, including new chair Dan Greenberg

Posted By on Mon, Feb 27, 2017 at 4:17 PM

The board of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Division is now chaired by Dan Greenberg, the president of a conservative think tank and a former Republican legislator from Little Rock.

The gubernatorial appointment has not yet been formally announced by Governor Hutchinson's office, to my knowledge (but since Greenberg presided over this morning's meeting of the ABC board, the news seems safe to report). After the meeting, Greenberg said the governor asked him to serve on the board last week.

He replaced former ABC chair Janet Moore, whose term expired in January. Greenberg left the legislature in 2011. He now runs the Advance Arkansas Institute and remains active in Republican politics.

The ABC board also got a second new board member in Jamie Anderson, a farmer from Lonoke. Anderson replaced Chris Palmer, who was appointed to the Workers’ Compensation Commission by the governor in December.

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
