|Arkansas Committee Assignments, 2015|
|• Aging, Children and Youth, Legislative and Military Affairs|
|• Public Transportation|
In a press release, Richmond highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "We need a representative who will focus on growing Arkansas’ economy, instead of growing Arkansas’ government. Hard-working families need a representative who will fight to protect their hard earned wages instead of punishing working families with a burdensome tax rate."
- Excerpt: "As a retired leader of Marines, I know the buck stops where the commanding officer stands. A real leader is responsible for everything he does or fails to do. That is the kind of leadership I’ve always sought to provide in all my endeavors, and if given the opportunity, that is the type of leadership I will take to Little Rock."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
Richmond and his wife, Susan, have two children.
