Businessman and Arkansas Highway Commissioner John Burkhalter released the following statement today on his resignation from four boards to focus more time and energy on his campaign for Arkansas Lieutenant Governor. Burkhalter resigned the Pathfinder, Inc. Board of Directors, University of Arkansas Campaign Arkansas Steering Committee, Baptist Health Foundation Board of Trustees and the Arkansas Highway Commission.
“I have taken great pride in serving our State through public and community not-for-profit boards. However, I have resigned from four boards on which I have served proudly over recent years, so I can focus my attention on sharing my vision for creating jobs and growing Arkansas businesses through my campaign for Lieutenant Governor. As the future demands on my time grow, I want to make sure that these organizations and their important work continue to progress.” – John Burkhalter.
