  • I have known Dave Wallace for 16 years and have been his co-worker,business partner and his friend. There is no finer man. His love of country is self evident with his valorous service to his country. He cares about America, Arkansas and the people of his District. He will be open to listening to ideas and will work hard to solve problems that are brought before him. The people of his district will do well in electing him to the Arkansas House.
