State Rep. Tiffany Rogers, Democrat

How long have you lived in the area of District 28? 49 Years

What do you believe qualifies you to be District 28 state Senator?

My working knowledge of SD 28, including education and agriculture, along with my record of working with Governor Beebe to cut taxes, improve education and create jobs.

What do you believe to be the most important issue facing Senate District 28? Creating jobs and providing a strong well trained workforce.

How would you meet the issue?

I have a jobs plan for SD 28. The plan can be viewed at The plan outlines opportunities for continued and ongoing natural gas development and working with area farmers in opportunities for renewable fuels.

What would be your top three priorities if elected, and brief explanations why?

I will continue to improve our educational opportunities in SD 28, from K12 to college. We have four community college campuses and one 4 year university in the District and we have good, solid public grade schools to continue to improve upon.

I will work to create jobs and economic development opportunities for SD 28. Both Lonoke and Searcy have interstate highway projects pending. Lonoke’s will begin in 2013. These projects will not only create jobs and put dollars into the local economy during construction, they will continue to do so with opportunities for future development such as hotels, restaurants and retail.

I will continue to work toward the completion of the two water projects in SD 28, Bayou Meto and White River Irrigation, by working with our congressional delegation and state officials to insure the needed funding is made possible to complete these two projects. These water projects are vital to the agricultural community and they too will create jobs through ongoing construction.
