    Ricky Visits Hot Springs

    I appreciate the opportunity I had to speak with the people of Garland County on Tuesday in Hot Springs.  There need to be more venues for the people to talk with those running for office  More events like these bring the people into the political arena.  

    We would like to thank the Garland County Public Library for setting this event up and filming the video of the candidate speeches.

    Meet Ricky


    Having grown up in the ArkLaTex region and graduating from Jefferson High School (TX), Ricky Harrington enrolled with the Sunset International Bible Institute and served a mission in Scotland. In this role, Ricky was both an assistant primary school teacher and a caregiver to the elderly.

    After his year-long mission in Scotland, Ricky moved to Arkansas where he attended Harding University. While attending Harding, Ricky also worked at a psychiatric hospital which allowed him to gain insight into the inner workings of our healthcare system. After receiving a Bachelor’s of Ministry from Harding University, Ricky went on to serve a two-year mission in China, where he worked as a university teacher and hospital consultant.

    Returning to Arkansas in 2016 from his mission work in China, Ricky took a position with the Arkansas Department of Correction at the Cummins Unit as a non-denominational prison chaplain. Ricky also served as “Treatment Coordinator” at the Cummins Unit, where he managed several inmate programs designed to increase long-term success rates of hopeful parolees integrating back into their communities, and decrease rates of repeat offenders.

    The experiences Ricky had working at the Cummins Unit in Pine Bluff helped to provide a new perspective on issues some Arkansans face, and his concern that these voices continue to go unheard lead him to campaign against Senator Tom Cotton in Arkansas’ 2020 Senate Election. Ricky made history as both the first black man to run for Senate in Arkansas, as well as the first Libertarian candidate to gain 33.3% of the vote in any race, nationwide.

    Ricky resides in Pine Bluff. His wife, Chujie, is active duty US Navy. Together they have three beautiful young children, two of whom are autistic.

    Ricky Harrington believes in leading by example; having dedicated his life to public service, he is joining the 2022 Governor’s race as a servant leader and advocate of liberty, equality, and abundance for all Arkansans.

    End the Grocery Tax

    Are you frustrated by rising prices at the grocery store?

    Many Arkansans like you are struggling to keep afloat amidst government-caused hyperinflation and the economic impact of covid-19. The next governor of Arkansas can't do much about bad policy from Washington, but he or she can offer everyone in the state significant relief. 

    Arkansas is one of thirteen states that taxes our produce, meats, and other groceries. In fact, in regards to all sales taxes, Arkansans pay more than most of the nation. To make matters worse with the federal government causing inflation by printing money, not only are Arkansans being forced to pay more, their dollars simply aren't worth as much. 

    It's time the legislature ends the Arkansas grocery tax. 

    Sign the petition to let Governor Hutchinson and members of the Arkansas legislature know that you've had enough!

    End the Arkansas grocery tax today.
