The Arkansa Homefurnishing Association last week announced the election of John Paul Wells to its Board of Directions.

Wells, a former State Representative, is the board member for the Northwest District. Wells is the owner of Wells Furniture in Paris.

“John Paul is a veteran of the furniture industry and we are honored to add him as a board member. His six years in the legislature is also very valuable,” said Association Executive Director Randy Lann. “The Association remains vigilant, looking at both state and federal legislation that affects the furniture industry and the private business sector as a whole.”
