Who Cindy Is

Cindy Crawford has served her community in many facets for three decades. Cindy is a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a grandmother, a cousin, and a friend. She is a passionate community servant, which has helped develop her into a community leader and a difference-maker.

As a State Representative, Cindy is a constitutionalist and believes human rights are essential to a free society.

Our Founders set up a Republic form of Government, a political system where citizens elect representatives to decide on their behalf, ensuring the power remains with the people.

Cindy stands for the people and listens to her constituents. Some differ in opinion of how to do things, but Cindy stands on the side of limited Government and lower taxes.

She avidly supports workforce development and the PEAK Innovation Center in Fort Smith. This center helps high school students from Fort Smith and the River Valley learn a trade before graduation. Peak Innovation Center / Homepage (

She is a Champion of Trucking and has received awards from the Arkansas Trucking Association.

She is a Champion for Life in the womb until the natural end of life. She sees the foster care system crisis and works with those involved to change the system. Cindy works with Restore Hope through the 100 Families Initiative; we have seen children in foster care reunited with their parents by empowering them to succeed. If unification is not possible, locating adoptive families for the children to find them forever homes. Because of this work, Sebastian County no longer leads the state with children in foster care!

Cindy and her husband Jerry are entrepreneurs and have been small business owners in Fort Smith. In the non-profit arena, they began "Tree of Life Preventative Health Maintenance, Inc."

Tree of Life has provided education to our community in preventing risky behaviors in youth and founding a community coalition to educate on tobacco and drug prevention.

Cindy understands the myriad of small business challenges and has worked to create the business and economic climate vital to succeed.

Cindy's vision is to help create a healthy, vibrant, and "cool" community that we will all be proud of, a community that will encourage our children to continue to invest, work, and live at home.

About Cindy Crawford

I am a native of the Greater Fort Smith Area, and I know our community's values, dreams, and visions.
In 1990, I began volunteering at the Pregnancy Crisis Center, where I became the director. During my tenure there, I saw firsthand the need for a home for young women in crises in our community. The board of directors (of the Pregnancy Crisis Center) and I began to pray about a long-term solution. One that could help guide and empower young women in an unplanned pregnancy or during their crisis to obtain and sustain a higher quality of life. In 1997, Hannah House, a home for young women, was birthed. Hannah House was open for 23 years. In that time, we served hundreds of young women and babies in a Christian environment. We were training in life skills, parenting, and academic classes, helping them be self-sufficient and become tax-paying citizens in the community.
While our season at Hannah House ended on June 30, 2020, I still have relationships with many of the young women who went through the program, and I can continually witness the impact that the ministry has had on their lives. We are always blessed to see how their time at Hannah House has equipped them for success—and positively impacted their lives and loved ones for generations.
I have been married to Jerry Crawford since 1980. Jerry is an entrepreneur. He has owned and operated a Custom Shop for Harley Davidson Motorcycles in his younger years and later employment agencies. In between those years, Jerry worked maintenance positions in two corporations in Fort Smith. He now travels with me to Little Rock. Jerry is my bodyguard and loves to fish on days that I work long hours at the Capital. Then, the woods call him in the fall, and he becomes a deer hunter, providing food for our table.
Jerry and I have two incredible sons, one daughter-in-law, Nick and wife Jenni, Miles, and two grandchildren, Jamie and Isaac, who call me "GranC." My mom, Bonnie, lives in Oklahoma and was a teacher/librarian until she retired. My Dad, Ott, was a Business Agent and then President of Teamsters Local 373 in Fort Smith. Their work ethic and love for our country have been embedded into me as I serve our state. I have two sisters, Melody and her husband Don, and my nephews and their families live in Oklahoma. My oldest sister, Stephanie, moved to heaven in 2008 with my Dad and other family members.
My motto is: Life is too short to be bitter or angry with anyone. Get mad, get over it, and move on! "Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun go down on your anger. Ephesians 4:26
