Treasurer Candidate from Walnut Ridge Says He Won't Accept Out-of-State Contributions

JANUARY 31, 2006 - Posted at 7:50 a.m. CST

 

WALNUT RIDGE, AR - Don House, former state legislator and a current candidate for State Treasurer, announced Monday that he won't accept financial contributions from out-of-state financial institutions that do not have an Arkansas presence.  The decision includes out-of-state lobbying interests and law firms that represent investment firms not in Arkansas.

"It is time for a breath of fresh air in state government," House said.  "I believe that as much as possible the state should invest Arkansas money in Arkansas.  Where it is not possible, due to a bigger return, then we should give in-state financial institutions the opportunity to invest that money if they can get an equal return."
