“Jim Dailey has been a dedicated public servant in The Natural State for most of his adult life and has devoted countless hours and energy to the tourism industry as a member of the Arkansas State Parks, Recreation and Travel Commission. He is a natural fit for this position, and I’m pleased that he has agreed to come on board in this new role. Tourism is one of the state’s leading industries and a major driver of economic development. I am confident that under Jim’s direction, Arkansas Tourism will continue to thrive, innovate and attract visitors from all across the world,” said Webb.I'd note a convergence unmentioned in the news release. The city's War Memorial Park Fitness Center was named in Dailey's honor for his pivotal role in its development (he's also a frequent user). It sits a field goal distance or two from War Memorial Stadium, now a part of the management responsibilities of Webb's department.
