SPEAKER SHEPHERD APPOINTS CLARK SMITH TO INDEPENDENT CITIZENS COMMISSION
Little Rock, Arkansas (November 3, 2021) –
Arkansas House Speaker Matthew Shepherd has named Clark Smith of El Dorado to serve on the Arkansas Independent Citizens Commission.
Mr. Smith will serve the remainder of Nathan Evers four-year term which is set to expire in January 2023. Mr. Evers resigned from the commission in August of this year.
Mr. Smith is the Senior Vice President of Martin Resource Management/Cross Oil in Smackover. He has been with the company for 29 years.
The Independent Citizens Commission was created in 2015 after Arkansas voters approved Amendment 94. The commission sets salaries of elected constitutional officers of the executive department, members of the General Assembly, justices, and judges. Amendment 94 states the Speaker of the Arkansas House is to make two appointments to the commission. Speaker Shepherd appointed J. Thomas “Tommy” May of Pine Bluff to the Independent Citizens Commission in February 2019.
