Elected in 2008 as State Representative for District 53, Keith Ingram’s campaign for re-election is under way. His message to Crittenden County voters has emphasized his experience, his passion for this community and especially his ability to help provide solutions on important issues, including education, job creation, health care and public safety.

“Public Service is just that,” Ingram said; “it is being of service to every citizen, every family, every local business, every institution and working with vision to benefit future generations. We do best when we work together to improve education, meet health care challenges, expand employment, reduce crime and lessen any tax burden that puts us at a disadvantage.”

Reduction of State tax on groceries
Obtained more funding for the county jail

Keith is a lifelong native of Crittenden County, and is a Member of First United Methodist Church in West Memphis. He is Vice President of Razorback Concrete Company, a family owned business with operations in fifteen East Arkansas communities, including the home office in West Memphis. Long a civic volunteer, he has given his time and energy to help our community grow and progress.

In addition to his current role as a State Representative, some of his current and recent leadership positions include:

Founding Member of the Arkansas Delta Council
Mayor of West Memphis 1987-1994 (two terms)
Serves on important House committees such as: Vice Chairman of Rule Committee, member of Revenue and Tax, Insurance and Commerce committees.

“Tuesday, November 2 is Election Day, and early voting starts on October 18,” said Ingram. “Seniors, children, merchants, businesses and all of us who live here, deserve elected officials who know that being selected to their political posts is a monumental honor.

“The citizen support and encouragement I have been fortunate to receive is much appreciated,” Ingram added. “When people contact me about issues that are personally important to them, or important to civic security, community safety, education, and job creation, it is my duty to be an advocate for good. I want to continue finding ways to provide solutions. That’s my duty.

“Please vote in this election. It is your right to choose those who will help our community become the best place in Arkansas for families. It can give our next generations strong reasons to make this their home.”
