Will Bond Announces He Will Run For State Senate
Will Bond announced Tuesday that he will run for State Senate District 32. Bond lives in Little Rock with his wife, Gabriel, and three children, son Cy (14) and twin daughters Marlee and Elliott (9). Bond has been a partner in the Little Rock law firm McMath Woods P.A. since 2006. Bond previously served three terms in the House from 2003 through 2008 representing District 44 (Jacksonville). Bond was asked to serve as Chairman of the Democratic Party of Arkansas by Governor Mike Beebe, and was elected and served in that volunteer position from 2011 through July of 2013. Bond’s campaign will focus on policies that allow all Arkansans the opportunity to succeed.
We are all in this together.
“One word defines my outlook on public service and policy — together,” Bond said. “We are all in this together. Our policies must focus on what is in the best interests of Arkansas, not what is best for special interests. I will work to expand Pre-K and improve our public schools, protect and improve Arkansas’s private option, conserve our natural resources and fight for equal rights for all, regardless of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation.”
Bond is the son of former State Representative Pat Bond and Tommy Bond. He has two sisters, Melissa Bond and Kelly Bond Emerson.

It is official. I am running for State Senate District 32. Check out the announcement. http://t.co/IaNuRYtU78. We are all in this together— Will Bond (@1willbond) June 17, 2015
Will Bond was the main sponsor of Act 60 in the Arkansas House of Representatives. How does closing rural Arkansas schools fit in his agenda for doing the right thing for all of Arkansas–a predominately rural state? And how does closing down primarily black schools fit in with equal rights for all races in Arkansas? Due to Act 60 School Consolidations, we just closed down the Hughes School District this month. . . one of the last remaining black schools. Destroying communities is not good leadership; it is agenda-driven control.
I would like to know if there has ever been a study of the amount of money that was supposed to be saved because of Act 60 versus if there was any savings at all. How do you quantify closing over 100 schools (and counting). If the ideal is size, look at the state of education in the Little Rock School District.
100% behind Bond. Hopefully he’s the first in a long line of progressives who take back Arkansas from the self-serving Right.
Will you are the perfect person for the job because you always look at the big picture. Anything we can do to help we will be happy to do because we need more in the legislature like you. Love your independence.
