State Representative Roger Lynch has announced he will seek re-election for a third term to represent District 14 in the Arkansas House. He serves constituents in Lonoke, Pulaski, Jefferson, Arkansas, and Prairie Counties.

“Too many times we see politicians get distracted with issues that have no impact on our daily lives. That’s a waste to taxpayer dollars,” Lynch said. “That’s why I want to continue to work together to pass meaningful legislation for the people of Arkansas.”

The Republican State Representative serves as vice-chair of the Joint Committee on Energy. Lynch also serves on the House Revenue & Taxation Committee and the House Insurance & Commerce Committee.

As a small business owner and life-long conservative, Lynch said in a press release that he backed legislation that supports small businesses, local economies and traditional family values. In addition to his own accomplishments, Lynch helped pass additional funding to improve our roads and highways, voted to increase our teacher’s salaries and helped push through a cut to the state’s top individual income tax rate to 5.9%.

“By focusing on fiscal responsibility and preserving conservative values, we can continue to help Arkansas be a prosperous place where people want to work, bring in business, and raise a family,” added Lynch.

He has received several honors for his legislative accomplishments, including the “Business Matters” leadership award from the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce and being named a “Distinguished Legislator” by the Arkansas Municipal League.

Lynch lives in Lonoke with his wife, Shelia, and is the owner and operator of a small business. He and his wife have two adult children and one grandchild. They attend Grace Baptist Church of Lonoke.
