Gov. Asa Hutchinson will celebrate his election to a second term with two days of inaugural events on January 14-15, 2019.

Hutchinson was re-elected to a second term as governor in November 2018 with 65% of the vote.

The two-day inaugural celebration will center around the theme “Together for Success” and will include free and paid events and activities. Dave and Sarah Hutchinson Wengel, Hutchinson’s daughter and son-in-law, are co-chairs of the 2019 Inaugural Committee.

“Sarah and I were delighted four years ago to help usher in ‘A New Day in Arkansas,’” said Dave Wengel. “We’re equally thrilled in 2019 to celebrate the accomplishments of the first four years and to help advance the Governor’s desire to work ‘Together for Success’ in the second term.”
