Governor Asa Hutchinson Issues Statement on the Passing of State Representative John Walker

LITTLE ROCK – Governor Asa Hutchinson issued the following statement on the passing of State Representative John Walker: 

“It is with much sadness that Susan and I learned of the passing of Rep. John Walker. For years, I followed his work as a civil rights attorney and advocate. For the last five years, I have had the opportunity to see John ably and passionately represent his constituents as a member of the General Assembly. John always was a gentleman and proved every day that you can get along with people even though there may be disagreements. He worked tirelessly for the causes he championed and for the people he represented. We will miss his service to our state. Our prayers are with his family and loved ones."
