State Representative John Maddox, who serves district 20, announced he will be seeking re-election for his seat in the State House. The district includes portions of Montgomery, Polk, and Sevier counties.
“When I first decided to run for office I wanted to make government more efficient and accountable. I’ve delivered on those promises by backing legislation that has allowed us to focus on growing our economy instead of our government,” said Maddox.

He is Vice Chairman of the Financial Institutions Sub-Committee. Maddox has been honored by the Arkansas Prosecuting Attorney’s Association and the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce separately for backing law enforcement legislation and supporting pro-business policies.
During his first term, Maddox played a key role in passing legislation that centered on helping Arkansas employers by reducing burdensome costs and supported legislation that incentivize people to get back into the workforce.
“I want to continue to focus on reforms to make Arkansas more attractive for businesses so our state’s economy can thrive,” added Maddox.
Maddox is an attorney at Maddox and Maddox Law Firm in Mena where sits on the board of directors of the Union Bank of Mena and Rich Mountain Community College.
