John Burkhalter and Cliff Gibson

John Burkhalter, pictured above with Monticello attorney Cliff Gibson, attended a fundraiser Monday night in Drew County for his bid for lieutenant governor. The event was held at the home of Dr. Jeff Reinhart. Photos from the event follows.

Burkhalter, a North Little Rock businessman, former chairman of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, and a former member of the Arkansas Highway Commission, says, if elected, he will focus on job creation and economic development.

Burkhalter, who received the endorsement of the Arkansas Education Association earlier this month, said he believes every child should have access to quality Pre-K, college scholarship funding should be increased, and career development and job training should be expanded to create a high-skilled and well-educated workforce.

Below are photos from the Monday night fundraiser at Dr. Reinhart’s home.
