Marvin Childers, president of the Poultry Federation, has decided not to enter the race for Arkansas attorney general. Childers received an outpouring of support from friends and leaders around the state encouraging him to run, however Childers said after careful consideration, he will remain in his position as president of the Poultry Federation of Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.
"I have always been interested in public service, and I hope I made a contribution to our state during the six years I spent in the Arkansas House of Representatives, and before that, as a prosecutor," said Childers.
"I love the political arena, and I will continue to look for opportunities to make Arkansas a place where people want to live and work. The poultry industry is critically important to the economy of Arkansas, and I am grateful for the opportunity, in my current position, to help lead this vital and dynamic industry," said Childers. "I look forward to continuing to work with the federal government and the state governments of our three-state region to help ensure the continued success of our industry."
Childers has been with the Poultry Federation since 2007. He served in the Arkansas legislature from 2001 to 2006.
