JONESBORO – First District Congressional candidate, United States Army veteran, and agri-business owner Rick Crawford announced the addition of three new members to his campaign cabinet. The three members, who all served previously on Tim Wooldridge’s congressional campaign, will be serving in similar capacities on the Crawford campaign.
Todd Gazaway, of Paragould, served as Campaign Chairman for the Tim Wooldridge for Congress Campaign. Todd will hold a similar position with Crawford and cited Rick’s conservative values as the reason for his support. “Rick is the pro-life, pro-traditional values candidate that reflects my values and the values of Arkansans in the First District. It will be an honor working with him and his other senior staff as we progress further in his campaign.”
Barry Phillips, of Jonesboro, served as a senior staff member and financial advisor for Tim Wooldridge for Congress. Phillps, who like Gazaway cited Crawford’s conservative values, also underscored Rick’s experience in job creation as his reason for joining the campaign. “Rick understands that every piece of legislation has a moral implication for families in the First District and I believe Rick is the person we need in Washington at this very critical time in our country.”
Doug Smith, of Cave City, who served as senior field director for Tim Wooldridge for Congress, will serve in the same position on the Crawford Campaign. “Rick is going to do all he can to help put people back to work and ensure that Arkansans in the First District come first, not any political agenda in Washington.”
“It is truly and honor and a privilege to work with these men on my campaign” Said Crawford. “Each of these men has been active leaders in the First District and I am looking forward to working with them in my campaign to restore our economy, our values, and our country”, concluded Crawford.
