Standing for Arkansas

A Message from David Ray

I am a Christian, a husband, a father, and an Arkansas conservative. I am running for the Arkansas House of Representatives District 40 to be a leader in the fight for lower taxes, limited government, and Arkansas family values. My goal is to protect our God-given individual liberties and to make Arkansas the best possible place to live, work, raise a family, and start a business.

I pledge to be the most accessible and transparent elected official you’ve ever had. If I can ever help or answer a question, please call me on my cell phone at (501) 916-0286.



  • Taxes

    Lowering our tax burden is critical to improving our business climate. Neighboring states like Texas and Tennessee have zero income tax. I support phasing out Arkansas’s income tax

  • Veterans

    Arkansas veterans will have no stronger advocate than me. I will advocate for policies that help our veterans and attract more veterans to our state. 

  • Job Creation

    Arkansas businesses need a skilled and trained workforce. I will work to help Arkansans further their education, whether that be certifications, trade schools, two-year colleges, four-year degrees, or advanced degrees. We need more qualified citizens all throughout the educational spectrum regardless of whether they are truck drivers or Ph.D.’s. All work is meaningful and has intrinsic value.  

  • Education

    Regardless of their ZIP code, every Arkansas child deserves a world-class education.  I support schools of all types, including public schools, charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, parochial schools, and homeschooling. 

  • Right to Life

    I have a 100% pro-life voting record from Arkansas Right to Life and was endorsed by Arkansas Right to Life in my campaign for the House

  • 2nd Amendment

    I had a 100% pro-gun voting record in the 93rd General Assembly, voting to expand concealed-carry rights and pass Stand Your Ground legislation.
