Former Faulkner County Sheriff Andy Shock has announced he is seeking Justice of the Peace in District 10.

Shock and his wife of 24 years, Kim (Kelley), live in Saltillo with their two children, Ryan, 22, and Allison, 20.

They are members of Oak Bowery Baptist Church.

Shock grew up in the small Faulkner County town of Enola.

His parents, Andrew and Margaret Shock, still live on their family farm in Enola.

Shock, a lifelong resident of Faulkner County, has extensive experience with Faulkner County government as a former sheriff and understands the critical funding role played by the Quorum Court.

As a fiscal conservative, Shock is committed to protecting taxpayers from any tax increase while re-evaluating current spending patterns to ensure community priorities like public safety and road maintenance are adequately funded.

He believes Public Safety should be a priority.

“Our dedicated law enforcement and emergency professionals should know that the Quorum Court will provide needed resources to do their difficult and demanding jobs," he said.

Shock wants to work closely with other members of the court and the community to find a much needed revenue stream to fund the operation of an animal shelter.

He wants to give the citizens of District 10 a calm and respectful voice on the Quorum Court.

“I’m asking for your vote in the Republican Primary on May 22,” Shock said.
