Greenwood – On Monday, Republican Wade Dunn announced his candidacy for Arkansas Representative 47.
Wade and Susan Dunn have lived in the Greenwood area all their married life. They attend First Baptist Church in Greenwood and have served in numerous ministry opportunities in the church and outside the church.
“I’m running for State Representative because it is past time for conservatives to stand up and be a real voice for our Christian, conservative values,” declared Dunn. “I promise to you that if you elect me as your next state representative, I will give you real conservative leadership.”
Dunn went to work at Pepsi in 1981. He worked just about every job at Pepsi over a period of 24 years. Dunn has been very involved in many community efforts and has served on the Board of Trustees at Mercy Hospital, and Carl Albert Jr. College.
After a career at Pepsi, Wade and Susan purchased Eastside Convenience Store in Greenwood in 2005. Also in 2005, Dunn purchased Advanced Vending in Fort Smith. He would go on to start Check Recovery Solutions. In 2009, Wade and Susan also bought Charleston Super Stop. After the sale of three businesses, Wade and Susan still own Eastside Convenience Store in Greenwood.
“I’m ready to focus my attention on making Arkansas a better State to live in and to do business in,” continued Dunn. “I understand what it takes to work through difficulties to make a business successful. Government should be smaller, less intrusive, and less prohibitive than it is today.”
“The Constitution is what it says and is not open to interpretation. We make politics too complicated today. It’s very simple for me: What does God’s word say? What does the Constitution say? That is how I will approach being your next state representative.”
