Blytheville Lawmaker Takes Job as Poultry Lobbyist

JANUARY 3, 2007 - Posted at 7:40 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A term-limited state representative from northeast Arkansas has taken a job with the Poultry Federation to lobby the Arkansas Legislature.

Marvin Childers of Blytheville will be the organization's chief lobbyist.  He replaces Morril Harriman, who left to become chief of staff for Governor-elect Mike Beebe.

Childers, a Republican, served six years in the House and is an attorney.

The Poultry Federation represents one of the largest agricultural interests in the state.  The poultry industry employs 45,000 people in Arkansas in production and processing.
