City Treasurer Greg Gustek has announced that he will be seeking re-election for the office of
Pine Bluff City Treasurer. He is currently serving in his 5 th term and wants to continue with his
experience to do the job for the citizens of Pine Bluff.
“Serving the people of Pine Bluff in this position is an honor for me being born, raised,
educated and living always here in our great city. I am Pine Bluff Proud” Gustek said.
He is a graduate of Pine Bluff High School and Louisiana Tech University.
Gustek served as President of the Arkansas Land of Legends Travel Association Tourism Board,
which promotes four counties: Jefferson, Cleveland, Grant and Lincoln. He was also Treasurer of
the Lake Saracen Project Association. That board built the Lake Saracen Walking and Biking
Trail, the Lake Saracen Splash Park and the all-inclusive play ground that all children even with
disabilities can have fun.
He served our city for many years before retirement as Director of the Pine Bluff Convention &
Visitors Bureau, which was the Sales, Advertising and Marketing Department of the City, which
promoted many events such as Business Expo, city festivals, Area Agency Bass Tournament,
Parks and Recreation events, Black Pilot of America and other Air Shows and all the museums
and attractions. He also served as Executive Director of the Pine Bluff Festival Association for
many years which owned and operated the “Enchanted Land of Lights and Legends” holiday
Christmas lights in Regional Park, and the 4 th of July Celebration.
Gustek explained that the City Treasurer is the City’s Banker and a very important part of the
checks and balances of the city’s Finance Department. However, he wanted to give credit to the
finance staff of Steve, Marilyn, Gina and Robin that handles the day to day operations. They do
an awesome job, and the citizens are fortunate to have their dedication working for them, he said.
He has been married to his wife Rhonda for 21 years and attends St. Joseph Catholic Church.
He will be running in the Spring Democratic Primary and asks again for you continued support!
