Business leader Jim Tull has announced his run for new State Senate District 32, which covers eastern Benton County in Northwest Arkansas.
Tull, a conservative “political outsider,” has decades of business experience working with companies and community organizations across Arkansas.
“I am running for Senate because we need elected officials focused on helping real people make their lives better,” said Tull in an official statement. “Too many politicians waste time fighting for Facebook likes instead of delivering real-world results for taxpayers. With my decades of business experience, I know I can help bring common-sense fiscal responsibility to Little Rock.”
Tull lives and works in Rogers in Benton County where he currently serves on the Rogers Civil Service Commission. His past service includes 12 years on the Board of the ALS Association of Arkansas as well as serving as treasurer for the Ozark Catholic Academy. Tull was previously chairman of the Rogers Chamber of Commerce Small Business Development Committee and president-elect of the Early Risers Rotary Club. He has also served as a board member of AMBUCS, Arkansas Tech Foundation, First Christian Church, Main Street Rogers, Northwest Arkansas Radiation Therapy Institute, Rogers Little Theater, Rogers Lowell Chamber of Commerce, and UAMS College of Medicine Board of Visitors.
Tull states that if elected, he plans to continue to champion mental health awareness and fight to secure additional funding for mental health programs, without raising taxes.
A formal campaign kickoff event is to be announced in March.
