Candidate promise not to lobby

A Senate candidate has promised never to become a lobbyist, according to this report.

“The revolving door used by lobbyists and legislators only serves to fill the pockets of special interests while ignoring the needs of Arkansas families,” said [Bill] Halter in a statement from his campaign. “During my career I’ve worked in both the private sector and public service. After completing a stint in public service, I have never become a lobbyist and I never will. When so many public officials move from their positions directly into lobbyist positions, it undermines public confidence in our government.”
