Marvin Childers, president and chief lobbyist of The Poultry Federation, is considering a run for Attorney General of Arkansas. Childers has held the post with the poultry organization serving Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma since January 2007.
"I am getting a lot of encouragement and I'm going to give it serious consideration," Childers told the City Wire. He added that a deadline for making a decision would come "later this summer." The election will be held in 2014.
Childers, a Republican from Little Rock, is no stranger to holding public office. He previously served in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 2001 to 2006. He has practiced law with Friday, Eldredge & Clark since 2000.
