Lt. Governor Mark Darr at MCRC Meeting

Our Committie was pleased to have guest speaker Lt. Gov. Mark Darr at our meeting last Thursday.  He joined us at Dixie Pig at Blytheville and we were pleased to sit with him at dinner.  He is a fine Christian man, the likes of which we need more of in government.  He has a genuine love and compassion for the State of Arkansas and our Country, but an even greater one for his wife and children.  This makes him a good man in our book!

Darr is a strong advocate for government transparency and economic development. As a candidate, he ran on the promise of helping to put an end to wasteful spending by implementing an online checkbook. Senate Bill 221, the Arkansas Financial Transparency Act, was signed into law on March 14, 2011. Darr is a firm believer in utilizing Arkansas’ natural energy resources, through natural gas and lignite exploration. He will continue to promote and encourage the study of the 4.5 billion tons of lignite which has been identified in the southern region of the state in hopes that it will bring more jobs and economic prosperity.
Darr has started businesses in both Central and Northwest Arkansas. He was born in Fort Smith (Sebastian County), in 1973, and is the youngest of four children. His father, the late Johnnie Darr, was a Southern Baptist minister who taught his children at an early age the value of faith, family and principle.

Darr was selected to serve on the National Lieutenant Governor’s Association (NLGA) Executive Committee as well as the NLGA’s Policy Resolutions Committee. He was also chosen by NLGA to represent Arkansas at the 110th China Import and Export Fair. Darr was inducted into the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 class of 2011 and Arkansas Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 class of 2012 in Little Rock. He and his wife Kim, an educator, and their two children reside in Springdale. He and Kim are members of Cross Church in Springdale. Darr is a licensed insurance agent.

We look forward to announcing and endorsing him for whatever position he chooses to run for this next term.  We ask that you be in prayer for his family as they have some very important decisions to make in the next few weeks!
