Meet Warwick

“I am running for Mayor because Little Rock has been standing still for too long. While we see other dynamic southern cities leading the way with fresh ideas, our leadership has just settled for the status quo. It’s time for that to change.”

Join me in this movement to make a change.

“We have the opportunity to be one of the best cities in the country, because we are blessed with a beautiful natural setting and great people who work hard and are committed to our community. But we can do better, and that takes leadership that is inclusive, energetic, creative, and visionary.”

“We need to make Little Rock a hub of economic activity, so we can have the good jobs of the future right here, and not lose talent to other cities. We need to make our schools great, so people want to raise their families here, and not move to the suburbs or out of the state. And we need to be smarter about how we fight crime, to keep families safe.”

“During my time in the state legislature, I’ve worked with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to strengthen our state’s ethics laws, promote clean energy, and bring more economic development to our state. I’ve also worked for the Clinton Foundation and founded the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub—a cutting-edge resource that supports those who want to create new businesses, invent new products, and acquire new job skills by putting energy and ideas to work for us.”
