This week, I have been “Touring the Fourth.” My first stop was Tuesday at Historic Washington State Park. Wednesday, I explored Hot Springs National Park and visited with the Hot Springs National Park Rotary Club. On Thursday, I ventured to the top of Arkansas – Mt. Magazine State Park’s Signal Hill –before venturing to Hawksbill Crag and the Buffalo River in Northwest Arkansas on Friday. Tourism drives our economy in the Fourth District, with millions of visitors annually. Statewide, $6 billion is spent by visitors each year supporting $1.1 billion in payroll and 61,000 jobs. That is why I am “Touring the Fourth” – to bring awareness to tourism and its impacts here at home.

Thank you to Park Superintendent Josie Fernandez for a tour of Hot Springs National Park in Garland County. 

Mt. Magazine's Signal Hill is the highest point in Arkansas at 2,753 feet, making it a sight to see in Logan County.

It is an honor to be your congressman. Thank you for allowing me to serve the citizens of the Fourth District. 

Sincerely,

Bruce Westerman
Member of Congress
