“For my entire tenure as Secretary, Christine has been a valued member of our Leadership Team. Her steady counsel has made our Department both stronger and safer. I wish her nothing but the best as she continues her public service by returning to the Attorney General’s Office. The AG-Elect is getting a great one.” – Arkansas Department of Corrections Secretary Solomon Graves
