Breaux seeks re-election to District 97 House seat

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

State Rep. Harlan Breaux recently announced he plans to seek re-election to continue serving district 97.  The district includes parts of Carroll, Madison, and Washington counties.

“I understand that in order for Arkansas’ economy to consistently thrive, we must create an atmosphere that attracts business while stimulating job growth and encouraging small business owners. With the help of voters in District 97, I plan to continue to advocate for common-sense conservative solutions Arkansans care most about,” Breaux said.

During the 92nd General Assembly, Breaux serves on the House Public Transportation Committee and the House Agriculture, Forestry & Economic Development Committee.  He supported the final phase in Gov. Hutchinson’s plan to lower income taxes for all Arkansans. 

Breaux said he is concerned by the amount of anger we see in politics today.

“So many people want to protest those they disagree with and I don’t understand why they have to be so hateful about it,” said Breaux. “I’m a social conservative. I’m pro-life and support traditional marriage, but if someone disagrees with that, instead of getting angry, let’s find common ground on another issue and work together.”

A veteran of the Vietnam War, Breaux served his country in the United States Navy between 1966 and 1970.  He spent 35 years at Alcoa Aluminum in Lake Charles, La., before retiring to Carroll County. 

“Veterans and seniors have made great contributions to our state and community and I will continue to be a strong advocate for them,” added Breaux.

Breaux and his wife Roxie have been married for 48 years.  They have one daughter and are members of Kings Hill Pioneer Church. He is a member of the NRA and Gideon International.
