Jerry Rephan was the Democratic candidate in the 2011 special election for District 24 of the Arkansas House of Representatives. The special election took place on March 8, 2011.

Rephan serves as a special judge for Garland County Circuit Court, Garland County Juvenile Court, and Garland County Small Claims Court.

Campaign themes

2011

Rephan's 2011 special election campaign site emphasizes several policy positions and campaign themes:

  • Jobs and a Strong Economy: "I will fight to bring jobs and training to those who are willing and able to work. I believe investing in education creates jobs and skilled workers. The Hot Springs area has a natural appeal that gives local businesses a natural advantage to grow a strong economy."
  • Helping Children and Families Succeed: "Jobs and a stronger economy are the best ways to help children and families, but the government must be there to offer a hand up when times are tough. I am dedicated to making more preventive, early help available. One ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Our government can do more and still save money."
  • Protecting Our Seniors: "Hot Springs has a national reputation as a "resort community" and that's why so many people move to our region to enjoy their retirement. By cutting expenses like the grocery tax and being responsible with state taxpayer dollars, we can ensure the fixed incomes our seniors depend on aren't eroded by rising costs and taxes."
