"Treat others as you would want to be treated. Fort Smith needs a representative who knows how to put others first. I was raised by a family that worked hard and knew the value of putting others before yourself. I want to extend that idea to the state house. I want to serve you and ensure that your future is protected. Our society must continue to make certain that our rights as American Citizens are protected and our economy continues to grow. As your state representative, I want to serve you so that you can take care of what's most important."
My name is Zachary Gramlich, I’m a Christian, husband, educator, and life-long resident of Fort Smith. I am running as a Republican for the Arkansas House of Representatives District 50 seat. I am a passionate and natural leader with the drive and motivation to bring about change in our state. While addressing state level issues, I also want to make the city we all call home a better and more attractive place to live, work, and raise a family. I would be privileged to have the opportunity to serve my hometown, Fort Smith, as your State Representative. I want to be your voice!
WHAT ZACK IS FOR
Sanctity of Life
"The evidence for life before birth is overwhelming... the denial of life's existence in the womb amounts to a religious doctrine- and a particularly destructive one. It has no place in a civilized legal system." - Kelsey Hazzard
Life begins at conception and should end at a natural death. All humans deserve love, respect, and the rights that are endowed upon them by their creator. Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness are all things we cannot deny to anyone, no matter how small.
Right to Bear Arms
The Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America was created to defend the first. Our founders intended for Americans to defend themselves from enemies foreign and domestic. Civilians must have the ability to defend themselves however they see fit.
"Intelligence and virtue being the safeguards of liberty and the bulwark of a free and good government..." it is the obligation of every parent to guarantee that Arkansas's children are educated at high levels to ensure that will be prepared for the careers of tomorrow. It is the job of every parent to ensure that their child receives an education that is best for their family. Parents should be able to choose what they believe is best and send their child where they see fit to receive a quality education.
Fort Smith is both a manufacturing and health care hub. Large companies are looking to set up shops in the region. They do this for many reasons. Our conservative values, safe living, great school system, and bountiful amenities. We need to continue investing in our infrastructure to continue to attract businesses to our region. When the community focuses on putting money into the career technical education of its youth and attracting a medical college, companies take notice. By continually striving to make the state more business friendly by offering positive tax structures and a well-educated workforce, Arkansas will continue to prosper.
