We are Saddened at the Passing of Representative John Walker

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of State Representative John Walker.   He was a pioneer and a man of deep conviction with an untiring work ethic.  Representative Walker never wavered from his dream of bringing justice and equality to those he served.  He had a unique ability to lay aside political differences.  This enabled him to connect with people at a personal level and create lasting relationships. The scriptures tell us that those who want to be great must first learn to serve.  Representative Walker knew this truth and his life is a testimony to it.  We are saddened by his passing.  We join all who mourn his loss, and we pray for God’s grace upon those who grieve.

Family Council Pleased With Nomination of Arkansas Attorney Lee Rudofsky to Federal Bench

Monday, July 1, 2019

On Monday, President Donald J. Trump nominated Lee Rudofsky to serve as a federal judge for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas.

Family Council President Jerry Cox released a statement saying, “We are very pleased with President Trump’s decision to nominate Lee Rudofsky. Mr. Rudofsky is highly qualified to serve as a federal judge. He is a graduate of Cornell University and Harvard Law School, and he has experience with constitutional law. As Solicitor General for the State of Arkansas, Mr. Rudofsky tirelessly defended state laws and policies in court—including policies that protect taxpayers from subsidizing abortionists like Planned Parenthood through Medicaid funding. While there were many other qualified candidates for the position, I am confident Mr. Rudofsky will do an excellent job serving on the federal bench, and I urge the United States Senate to confirm him.”

Family Council is a conservative education and research organization based in Little Rock.
