Democratic Candidate for House District 95
Celeste Williams is a mother, a foster mom, and has been a nurse for over 20 years. Being a nurse was and is a calling to reduce suffering through compassionate care and service, to work to improve lives. Through my work as a nurse practitioner, she met children entering the foster care system and felt led to become a foster parent because all children deserve love and stability and she saw an opportunity to make a difference in their lives. Those children have certainly made a profound impact in her life. Nurses are advocates and collaborators and she hopes to bring these skills to Little Rock. In her years working in healthcare, she has worked with a diverse group of people but they put what divided them aside in order to do the best thing for their patients. It is this sense of purpose, doing what is best for the community no matter our difference that will help me work across the aisle to make the lives of all Arkansans better. Celeste believes we all want the same things, quality education, access to affordable healthcare, job opportunities, good infrastructure, a functional democracy, clean water, safe spaces for our children and an opportunity to enjoy our beautiful state. These should not be partisan issues.
While one on one relationships in her practice is cherished and make a difference in the lives of individuals, she wants to bring the voices of her community and their needs to their state government in Little Rock. This is an opportunity to improve the lives of many at once and return to my original calling, improving the lives of people through compassion and service. She wants to represent the working family, children, and the aging members of our community who paved the way for them because life at all stages has value and worth. Celeste believes that each person should be given dignity and the best opportunity for success. She will fight for the people, not the political party. She will bring her dedication to service, compassion, and collaborative skills to the Arkansas House of Representatives. She will represent every member of her community to the best of her ability. She is asking for your support and your vote.
