Jim Sorvillo (Republican)
Undecided
I believe we have to approach the issue with caution to preserve second amendment rights while allowing a process to allow law enforcement and others to go to a judge and present evidence that a young person shouldn’t have firearms because their mental health has caused them to be a danger to themselves or the community.
3. Marijuana: Amending the Arkansas Constitution to legalize recreational marijuana.

Jim Sorvillo (Republican)
Oppose
4. Taxes: Amending the Arkansas Constitution in 2020 to indefinitely continue the current 0.5% sales and use tax for road construction.
Ashley Hudson (Democrat)
Candidate Refused to Complete the Survey.

Jim Sorvillo (Republican)
Undecided
Voters should the right to decide on continuing taxes for road construction but I believe that a 10 year sunset provision as originally passed is the best solution to provide for road construction but to allow voters to determine if there is a need in the future.
5. Hate Crimes: Increased penalties for crimes committed because of the victim’s race, gender, or sexual orientation.
Ashley Hudson (Democrat)

7. Education: Allowing parents to enroll their child in the public school of their choice anywhere in Arkansas.
Ashley Hudson (Democrat)
Candidate Refused to Complete the Survey.

Jim Sorvillo (Republican)
Support
I strongly support quality public education and right of parents to select the best option to fit the educational needs of their students. In fact, I support increasing public school options in Little Rock by creating a new High School in West Little Rock to serve my constituents who want a school closer to their neighborhoods and sponsored the legislation to allow greater representation on the Little Rock School Board when it is reinstated to local control.
