Representative Julie Mayberry of Hensley, Arkansas, received the 2019 Statesman Award from Family Council Action Committee on September 12th, at the Arkansas State Capitol in Little Rock, Arkansas. Ken Yang, Political Director for the organization, presented the award.
Mayberry received the award for making an “A” on the 2019 Family Council Action Committee legislative report card. Recipients of this award are recognized for their votes during the 92nd General Assembly on the 25 bills in the report card.
“Legislators regularly face tough votes at the State Capitol and their hard work, good votes, and dedication to Christian family values are often unknown to the public” said Yang. “We chose votes on bills based on our core belief in promoting, protecting, and strengthening traditional family values.”
Mayberry is currently serving in her second term as a State Representative and works in media and advertising for Spirit Publications, Inc. She currently serves on the House Public Transportation Committee, the Legislative Joint Auditing Committee, and the House Aging, Children and Youth, Legislative and Military Affairs Committee.
During the 2019 legislative session Mayberry sponsored HB 1385, now Act 983. Act 983 is a new law that effectively prohibits liquor stores from opening near a public or private daycare facility licensed by the State of Arkansas.
“We are thankful that Representative Mayberry’s votes on those bills reflect our mission,” stated Yang, “we are pleased to present Representative Mayberry with the 2019 Statesman Award.”
Julie and her husband Andy currently reside in Hensley, Arkansas, and have four children.
Family Council Action Committee is slated to present awards to legislators through 2019. Family Council Action Committee is a conservative 501(c)(4) organization based in Little Rock, Arkansas.
