The Democrats have a new leader in the House.
On Tuesday, House Democrats elected Fred Love of Little Rock to serve as minority leader.
Minority Leader Love is excited to lead Arkansas Democrats into a new era saying, “I am proud to accept the support of my caucus and excited about the opportunities that lay ahead. We are ready to fight for the issues that will make a real difference to the lives of Arkansans.”
One issue the new Minority Leader remains concerned about is infrastructure. “Now more than ever, we need to be focused on building our infrastructure,” said Leader Love. “That includes shoring up our rural healthcare system, reinforcing our levee systems, and bringing broadband into every home in Arkansas.”
