Central Arkansas Water (“CAW”) has selected David Johnson as its new attorney/legal counsel.

As noted in a previous blog post, CAW had issued a “Notice of Job Opening” earlier this spring seeking an attorney for the water utility.

Mr. Johnson is a graduate of Georgetown University.  He subsequently served as a Staff Assistant for the United States Senate Committee on Small Business chaired by United States Senator Dale Bumpers. 

After obtaining his law degree from the University of Arkansas School of Law, he served as a Pulaski County Deputy Prosecutor from 1998-2004 and was in private practice at Wright, Lindsey & Jennings, LLP, where he was engaged in a commercial and general business law practice.

Mr. Johnson has been an Arkansas state senator for District 32 since 2009.  He previously served in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 2004-2008.
