Rogers resident Jana Della Rosa announced Tuesday (May 21) her intent to run for the Arkansas House of Representatives District 90 seat.
Della Rosa, 36, will run as a Republican in the hopes of succeeding Rep. Les Carnine, R-Rogers, who holds the seat but is term limited.
The district is located in south central Benton County and encompasses parts of Rogers, Cave Springs, Lowell, Bethel Heights, and Springdale.
Her campaign, according to a press release sent out after 5 p.m. on Tuesday, “will focus on improving the quality of education for Arkansas children, lowering the tax burden on families, and encouraging job creation and economic growth throughout the state.”
Della Rosa grew up in Springdale and is married to Russell Della Rosa of Tontitown.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in computer systems engineering from the University of Arkansas, and is employed by Church and Dwight Co., and works on the Walmart group for the consumer packaged goods company.
“I will work hard to represent the conservative values of District 90 in the State Capitol. I believe in smaller government, lower taxes for working families, I am pro-life and support the Second Amendment,” Della Rosa said in a statement.
She serves on the Board of Directors of Conservative Arkansas, and is also a member of the Benton County Republican Committee and the Benton County Republican Women.
