Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge appointed Miguel Lopez of Little Rock to the Arkansas Ethics Commission on Friday (July 15).

The Ethics Commission serves as the compliance and enforcement agency tasked with ensuring Arkansas’ standard of conduct and disclosure laws are adhered to by candidates for public office, state and local officials, lobbyists, political committees and individuals involved with ballot initiatives.

“Miguel is a respected professional in the banking world and I couldn’t be prouder to appoint him to the Commission,” Rutledge said. “As a child who immigrated to the United States, Miguel epitomizes the American dream where hard work and dedication result in a prosperous and fulfilling career.”

Lopez is currently the Chief Community Outreach Officer for Encore Bank and has previously worked at First Community Bank and the Little Rock Chamber.

He graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock receiving his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science as well as his Masters of Public Administration.

“As an immigrant, I carry with me a servant’s heart. Always looking for ways to give back to the state that has given my family so much,” said Lopez. “I want to thank Attorney General Leslie Rutledge for this nomination. I will work tirelessly for this commission and our great state.”
