Meet Max Avery
Max has built a record of accomplishments with his business leadership.
He wants to see Arkansas leading in job creation, while focusing on
tax reform to increase wealth and prosperity for Arkansans at all levels.
Together we can create new opportunity for a bright future in Arkansas.
Throughout my career, I have been committed to helping Arkansans at all levels. Having worked with a variety of nonprofit organizations in Fort Smith, I continually seek to bring positive change to the community.
I’ve always stood for a limited but effective government, and I’ve always stood for individual liberty and responsibility. I am convinced that most Arkansans today believe the same and value the right to choose what is best for them and their family. I’m running because some politicians seem to disagree.
As State Representative, I will take the necessary steps to address real problems in our community, such as reducing the individual tax burden to help stimulate our state’s economy and have our schools focus on worthwhile curriculum to better prepare our children to be successful and productive members of society.
Together we will:
- Improve our education system
- Create new jobs & opportunities
- Reduce the tax burden
- Defend individual liberties
- Grow our local economy
- Build a safer, stronger Arkansas
A Few Words About Me
