Justice of the Peace Eva Madison announced today that she will seek a second term on the Washington County Quorum Court. Madison was elected to her first term in November 2010 and took office in January 2011. She currently serves on the Court’s Finance, County Services, and Budget Committees, as Chairperson of the Court’s Legislative Affairs and ad hoc Information Technology Committees, and as the Court’s representative to the Arkansas Association of Quorum Courts.
“It has been a privilege to represent the people of my district, and I want them to know they can continue to count on me to represent their interests in county government,” said Madison in a release. “Public service is very important to me, and I enjoy dedicating my time to the people of Washington County.”
Madison said she remains interested in animal concerns matters. “Having worked on animal issues in Washington County for almost a decade, it has been exciting to be a part of the process of building a county animal shelter. I want to see that project through to completion,” Madison said.
She said she also remains focused on the county’s budget process. “The Quorum Court worked hard on the 2012 budget, but I think we can do better for the taxpayers of Washington County. In the 2013 budget process, I will push for a closer look at actual expenditures, as well as a budget that provides the citizens of Washington County with a more accurate picture of how we are spending their tax dollars.”
Madison is a graduate of Fayetteville High School, Vanderbilt University, and the University of Arkansas School of Law. She practices law in Fayetteville and also serves on the adjunct faculty of the University of Arkansas School of Law. She is a volunteer with Legal Aid of Arkansas, the Junior League of Northwest Arkansas, Friends of Washington County Animals, and the University of Arkansas Law Alumni Society.
She has been married to local patent attorney David Pieper for 17 years. They have one son, Sam, age 2.
