- NOW OFFICIAL: Lobbyist Gilbert Baker.
Of course former Sen. Gilbert Baker
is a lobbyist for the University of Central Arkansas
. Of course that's why he got
a fat $132,000 job, to schmooze with all the people he controlled through the legislature all those years. Of course this is why the law must be changed to prevent term—limited legislators from moving seamlessly and instantly from the legislature to the same lobby they once helped with friendly legislation. Of course UCA President Tom Courtway
and Gilbert Baker should be ashamed. Of course they are not.
UA Chancellor David Gearhart DOES appreciate UCA deflecting a little attention from the UA coverup of out-of-control spending in the Advancement, for which the man responsible was punished with being allowed to do nothing for almost three times Baker's salary.
