State Rep. Mat Pitsch, R-Fort Smith, announced Wednesday (Aug. 12) that he will seek re-election to the District 76 seat in the Arkansas House of Representatives.
Pitsch was elected to the two-year term in 2014 after a defeat in 2012, and has served since January 1, 2015. In his statement, he labeled himself as a fiscal conservative, small-business advocate, and successful economic developer.
“It’s been encouraging to see the progress that the Governor and legislature has been able to make this year,” Pitsch said. “I’m proud to have played a part thus far and excited to be part of the work moving forward. Fort Smith has benefitted with a renewed focus on Western Arkansas and I hope to see that continue.”
Pitsch said if re-elected he will continue to represent Fort Smith and the region, promoting economic development, expanding and maintaining transportation infrastructure and stimulating pro-growth economic policies for the state.
