holland-livestock-poultry-commissionWe were very pleased to see that Senator Bruce Holland from Greenwood was appointed by Governor Asa Hutchinson as Executive Director of the Arkansas Livestock & Poultry Commission.

Holland replaces the political appointee former Faulkner County Judge Preston Scroggin.

Former Governor Mike Beebe named Scroggin to the Livestock & Poultry Commission in January 2013 after investigations began in 2012 surrounding Faulkner County’s purchase of an $11,000 sniper rifle, the improper paving of County Administrator Jeff Johnston’s personal driveway, and other issues that arose during the May 2012 primary elections.  (Scroggin was never charged in any of these investigations.)
