Thanks to several who sent notes last night about the death of Jon Fitch, the former state senator who was director of the state Livestock and Poultry Commission. Roby Brock reports.
Said Gov. Beebe:
I met Jon when I entered the Senate in 1983, and we remained close colleagues for the next 28 years. A dear friend and a dependable ally, Jon jumped at the chance to lead the Livestock and Poultry Commission, and his time there has bolstered both the efficiency and morale of the office. We will miss his warm smile and his dedication to Arkansas, and I will personally miss his friendship.
