JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Transformation was at the forefront of a public town meeting in Jonesboro Tuesday.

Governor Asa Hutchinson led a professional panel to discuss transformation in state government, state committees, and even at Arkansas State University.

It was a time for the public to ask questions and understand the governor's changes made so far, as well as ones he has planned for the future. Changes that he said have been a long time coming.

"But that gave me great interest when I became governor I recognized and looked at the history," Gov. Hutchinson said. "And the fact is that our last reorganization of state government, our last transformation effort, took place 47 years ago under then-Governor Dale Bumpers."

Other members on the panel included Chancellor Kelly Damphousse, Mike Preston, George Dunklin, and Mike Carrol.
