BRANDON ACHOR IS RUNNING FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE IN 2022
Brandon has been active in the past 4 legislative sessions, serving in his capacity as the District 3 Representative for the Arkansas Pharmacists Association. Brandon has also served on the board of directors for the Maumelle Area Chamber of Commerce, the Lonoke Chamber of Commerce and is a member of the Maumelle Rotary Club. His efforts to further the profession of Arkansas pharmacists were recently recognized with the 2019 Distinguished Young Pharmacist of the Year Award by the Arkansas Pharmacists Association.
Brandon was born and raised in Maumelle. Following graduation from Arkansas Baptist High School, Brandon attended the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville to study Biochemistry and spent 1 semester abroad in Dublin, Ireland where he would discover his passion for pharmacy. Throughout pharmacy school, Brandon worked at Argenta Drug in North Little Rock, where he met his now wife and fellow pharmacist, Kaley. Brandon and Kaley now co-own several independent community pharmacies across central and rural eastern Arkansas. To date, they have helped to establish and continue the unique access to locally owned pharmacy care in 12 communities. He and Kaley attend Central Hope Church in Little Rock and spend most of their free time trying to keep up with their beautiful 10-month-old daughter Savvy and her mini-aussie Gus.
WHAT BRANDON IS FOR
CLICK ON AN ISSUE BELOW TO SEE HOW BRANDON WILL FIGHT FOR ARKANSAS
SMALL BUSINESSESAs co-owners of several community pharmacies across the Natural State, my wife and I know firsthand the burden that excess taxes and regulation places on small businesses. As your state representative, I will do all I can to lower taxes, and decrease burdensome red tape to provide for a more viable business environment for those small businesses powering the economy of Arkansas.
FISCAL RESPONSIBILITYExcess government spending is out of control. We need leaders who will prioritize transparent financial decision making to protect our economy, communities, and families. We need to honor the tax dollar and invest in auditable and defensible programs. I will vote to do just that.
CRIMINAL JUSTICEWe have a crime problem in central Arkansas. We need to fix our broken parole system, increase capacity at our state crime lab, and decrease our trial case backlog. I will also support increasing law enforcement pay and incentives as a way of attracting the best and brightest to protect and serve our communities.
EDUCATIONI believe there is no single approach to education that works for every child and proudly support a parent’s right to School Choice. Our country’s economic system is proof that healthy competition and a merit-based approach can lead to innovation and improvement over the status-quo. As your representative, I will work to ensure all Arkansas children have access to the best education alternatives possible.
ARKANSAS VALUESOne of the most important traits I hope to bring forth as your state representative is my conservative values. Rooted in my Christian upbringing and entrepreneurial work ethic, I believe these values reflect and honor my constituents. I believe we as Arkansans are better than the zero-sum “Culture War” approach to politics and should strive for results over rhetoric. If elected, I promise to bring a nuanced and informed approach to decision-making that is grounded in conservatism, while always focusing on what is most important to Arkansans and my district.
