“As a business owner, and having education in business law and business administration, I have the qualifications to serve as Secretary of State, but Susan Inman has the hands on experience,” Bland said. “In fact considering her vast experience with the election process, she may be the best qualified candidate to ever seek the office.”
Dr. Bland is the first Democrat to enter the race for Lieutenant Governor. “I’m running for this office because I believe all Arkansans deserve an equal opportunity to obtain quality education, affordable health care, and jobs that pay decent wages,” said Bland. “As Lieutenant Governor, I will work to achieve these goals.”
Bland is looking forward to challenging Tim Griffin in the General Election. “I’m looking forward to winning the nomination so I can face Griffin. The Lieutenant Governor is a Trump enabler who is out of tune with the people of Arkansas. I intend to call him out on his support of the Trump agenda,” said Bland.
Anthony Bland graduated from J.A. Fair High School and Arkansas Baptist College. He has a Master of Business Administration and Doctor of Business Administration Degree from the University of Phoenix. He is currently completing a Master of Theological Studies Degree from Regent University.
