Susan Inman Announces Candidacy for State Representative
(Little Rock) - Today, Susan Inman announced her candidacy for State Representative, District 32. Inman said serving as a State Representative would give her the opportunity to continue working for Arkansans and to put people first.
"Public service has been the focus of my professional career and by serving as State Representative I'll continue to put the people first," said Inman. "Putting people first means working to improve our public schools, giving a helping hand to those in need and strengthening our local economy to create good-paying jobs."
Susan has more than 25 years experience in state and county government. She served as Director of Elections for former Secretary of State Sharon Priest and was the Pulaski County Election Director and Supervisor of the Civil/Criminal Division of the Pulaski County Circuit Clerk's Office. She has served as both a county election commissioner and a state election commissioner.
"I graduated from public schools, as did my sons, and I want my grandchildren to receive the benefits of a quality education which is why I'll work to strengthen and improve our public schools," said Inman. "We must also dramatically expand Arkansas's pre-kindergarten programs so that it is available to every child, not just a select few."
In 2009, Inman organized the first association for County Election Commissions in the State of Arkansas and was elected its President. In 2011, she wrote and published, "A How-to Handbook for County Election Commissioners" that was distributed to officials statewide.
"As a retiree on a fixed income, I understand the difficulties seniors have making ends meet," said Inman. "Our seniors have financial challenges paying for medicine and housing, not to mention food and utilities. As State Representative I'll fight to protect our seniors and make sure Arkansas never forgets their struggles."
Inman has been selected by the U.S. Department of State to monitor and observe more than a dozen elections in Eastern Europe and Central Asia over the last 15 years. Susan received the 2004 Public Servant of the Year Award from the Arkansas Disability Coalition. She is also a graduate of Leadership Greater Little Rock Class XVIII.
Susan was married to the late George Inman, Sr. She has two sons, George and William, and three grandsons. After graduating from Hall High School, she attended the University of Central Arkansas (Arkansas State Teacher's College) and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
Susan is seeking the Democratic nomination for House District 32. If successful, she will face incumbent Jim Sorvillo in the November 2016 general election.
