STATE HONOR. State Sen. Larry Teague (left) of Nashville accepts the Distinguished Legislator Award from Rick Elumbaugh, president of the Arkansas Municipal League.

State Sen. Larry Teague of Nashville recently received the Distinguished Legislator Award from the Arkansas Municipal League. The presentation was made during the opening night banquet of the League’s 81st convention.

Municipal League president and Batesville mayor Rick Elumbaugh made the presentation. The award was given in recognition of Teague’s “strong support of cities and towns in Arkansas during the 90th General Assembly,” Elembaugh said.

Each legislative session, legislators assist Arkansas’s cities and towns with key legislative issues affecting municipalities. These legislators, through their actions at the Capitol this past session, were instrumental in contributing to the overall quality of life for the citizens in Arkansas’s municipalities, according to the League.

“The Arkansas Municipal League and its member cities are appreciative of Senator Teague for his efforts in doing so,” Elumbaugh said.

The Municipal League has a voluntary membership comprised of all 500 cities and towns in the state and was created to assist cities with information and representation in the public affairs of the state and nation.
