© 2018 Larry Williams for Land Commissioner
Larry Williams grew up in Malvern, Arkansas and graduated from Malvern High School in 1970. His first job was as a carrier for the Malvern Daily Record.   "At an early age I grew in love with government and politics. My grandfather would take me to political events and I loved election nights when people would gather on the courthouse lawn to get local election returns. In the eighth grade I delivered the Daily Record to all the offices in the courthouse and I knew who all the elected officials were. It seemed fitting that I should make my announcement for statewide office in my hometown where my political journey began.” As county judge Williams served on the Commissioner of State Lands Advisory Council during the tenure of then Land Commissioner Charlie Daniels.   During his time as county judge, Williams attended meetings of the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council to support funding requests by Garvan Woodland Gardens. The land commissioner is a permanent member of the Council. John Thurston, current land commissioner who is term limited and now running for secretary of state, is now the chairman of the Council. Williams retired as Garland County Judge on December 31, 2010 after serving eight, two-year terms. He is the longest serving county judge in the history of Garland County. In 2014 he was elected as a member of the Hot Springs Board of Directors where he represents District 4.  Williams is a member of the Board of Directors for the Area Agency on Aging of West Central Arkansas and the 18th Judicial District Criminal Detention Facilities Review Committee. Williams holds a Master's degree in Public Administration from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and a Bachelor's degree in Journalism from Henderson State University. He is an adjunct faculty member for the Political Science department at UALR where he teaches various government classes. He is a member of Grand Avenue United Methodist Church in Hot Springs.
