Miguel Lopez, chief community outreach Officer for Encore Bank, has been appointed to the Arkansas Ethics Commission by Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.
The commission is the compliance and enforcement agency tasked with ensuring candidates for public office, state and local officials, lobbyists, political committees and individuals involved with ballot initiatives adhere to the state’s standard of conduct and disclosure laws.
“As an immigrant, I carry with me a servant’s heart. Always looking for ways to give back to the state that has given my family so much,” Lopez said in a news release. “... I will work tirelessly for this commission and our great state.”
He previously worked for First Community Bank and the Little Rock Chamber.
Lopez earned his Master of Public Administration and bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
He also serves as vice chairman of Goodwill of Arkansas and chairman of the Excel Center school board.
