Gov. Hutchinson Issues Statement on the Passing of Former Arkansas Congressman, Jay Dickey

LITTLE ROCK - Governor Asa Hutchinson issued the following statement on the passing of former Arkansas Fourth District Congressman Jay Dickey:

“Jay was one of those unique people who loved life and everyone around him. I had the privilege of serving with Jay in Congress, and I have never seen anyone who was so determined to fight for the people in his district. He made friends easily, and he stuck by them. I played basketball with Jay in the House gym, where, like everywhere else in his life, he was a competitor. He will be missed."
