Batesville Native Joins Boozman’s Washington Office

Written by Press Release

June 9, 2021

WASHINGTON–Batesville residents calling U.S. Senator John Boozman’s Washington, D.C. office may find a familiar voice at the other end of the line. Cody Garner of Batesville joined Senator Boozman’s team as a staff assistant. 

“Having the opportunity to come work in Washington is something that I have always wanted to do since I was a young man. I feel very fortunate to be able to work for a senator who cares so deeply for his constituents, and I am excited to do my part connecting with and helping Arkansans with their needs,” Garner said.

“Cody is a great addition to our office. His connection to our state and demonstrated passion to work on behalf of Arkansans will help my team fulfill vital functions that constituents expect and rely on. He has already hit the ground running and we look forward to the many contributions he will make using his knowledge, talents and enthusiasm,” Boozman said. 

As a staff assistant, Garner plays a vital role in providing the great constituent service for which Boozman is known. He is responsible for answering questions from Arkansans who call the senator’s Washington office about pending legislation and debates on the Senate floor. He also helps ensure flag requests are processed correctly and photos the senator takes with Arkansans are provided to the individuals and families who visit the senator in the nation’s capital. 

Prior to joining Boozman’s staff Garner interned for Senator Tom Cotton and Congressman Steve Womack. 

Garner is a 2017 graduate of Batesville High School, and a 2021 graduate of the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville with a bachelor’s degree in both political science and international/global studies. He is the son of John and Sherry Garner.
