A pharmacist, Achor, below, is also a member of the Maumelle Rotary Club as well as being a former board member of the Maumelle Area Chamber of Commerce.
He is also a member of the Arkansas Pharmacists Association.
In a release, Achor said, ““As a Conservative Republican and small business owner, I am dedicated to supporting these important values we all share: protecting the unborn, fighting the red tape that burdens our small businesses, defending the 2nd Amendment, promoting competition and parental oversight in our education systems, and valuing our law enforcement and all those who stand in harm’s way for our protection. As your representative, it would be my honor to fight for all our freedoms and promote a stronger community at home. I’m humbly asking for your support and vote.”
Achor owns Achor Pharmacy in Maumelle with his wife, Kaley, who is also a pharmacist. They are also partners in independent pharmacies that serve 12 communities in central and east Arkansas.
A graduate of what is now Baptist Prep, Achor then attended the University of Arkansas. He, his wife, and daughter Savvy live in Maumelle and attend Central Hope Church in Little Rock.
Brandon, I’m so happy to hear of your political aspirations and know you will make positives contributions to Arkansas. I’ll be supporting you from a distance in AZ. Merry Christmas from Deez
