Griffin Receives Endorsement of the Arkansas Realtors Political Action Committee
Will continue to advocate for policies that support growing jobs and homeownership
LITTLE ROCK – Second District Congressman Tim Griffin has received the endorsement of the Arkansas Realtors Political Action Committee (ARPAC) in his race for Lieutenant Governor. Griffin, a Republican, released the following statement:
“I am humbled to have earned the support of the Arkansas Realtors. Residential real estate is key to growing jobs and economic opportunity. I understand the role residential homeownership plays in our economy and in growing jobs in our community which is why as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, I have fought to preserve the mortgage interest deduction for homeowners. I oppose excessive and overly burdensome regulations that threaten property rights and make owning a home more expensive. As Arkansas’s next Lieutenant Governor, I will continue to advocate for policies that support growing jobs and homeownership.”
Sharla Lau, ARPAC Chairperson said, “It is critical that Realtors form a working relationship with our elected officials. We look forward to working with Tim Griffin to encourage and protect the American Dream of Homeownership.”
