Political Animals Griffin


Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin will be the guest speaker at the next Southeast Arkansas Political Animals Club meeting at noon on Tuesday, Aug. 29 at the Monticello Western Sizzlin.

Griffin is serving his first term as lieutenant governor. From 2011 to 2015, he represented Arkansas’s 2nd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. From 2006 to 2007, Griffin served as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas and, earlier, Special Assistant and Deputy Director of Political Affairs for President George W. Bush. For over 20 years, he has served in the U.S. Army Reserve Judge Advocate General’s Corps and holds the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

“We are honored to have Lieutenant Governor Griffin speak at our next meeting,” said John Davis, chairman of the Southeast Arkansas Political Animals Club. “His wide range of experiences and public service will certainly lead to valuable insights at the national and state levels. I’m very much looking forward to what he has to say.”
