- Advertisement -spot_img

Hey Greenwood, my name is Alex Gustafson, and I am running for Greenwood City Attorney. I am married to my wife Stephanie and am a proud stepfather to her son Colton. I grew up in Dallas Texas and moved to Fayetteville in 2010 further my education at the University of Arkansas. I moved to Greenwood in 2018 and joined the Walters Law Firm. During my time at Walters, I handled a wide range of legal matters and was able to learn from prominent attorneys in the area and gained important relationships. My experience at Walters helped me understand how to successfully try cases and to vigorously represent clients.

After discussions with my mentors about my future, it was determined that my talents could be best suited in representing the City of Greenwood where I live. Thereafter, I started my law firm, ALEXGUS LAW, LLC, where I currently share office space with Michael Hamby who has served as the Greenwood City Attorney for the last 30 years. I have shadowed Mr. Hamby for the past year, learning the ends and outs needed to adequately represent the City.

As City Attorney, I feel that I am obligated to protect the integrity of Greenwood and to keep its interests as my main priority. I aim to help the City be transparent and to adequately advise the local government concerning any important issues.

I am the most qualified candidate because I get things done. Throughout the past year, I have helped spearhead the sidewalk litigation and successfully obtained an order allowing the City to begin the much needed sidewalk construction. Further, I aided in the annexation of the Curve at the corner of Hwy. 10 and 71, which expands Greenwood’s borders and allows for future businesses to take foothold. Currently, I am serving on a special committee for the Water Commission to help negotiate and draft a new contract with James Fork.

The City Attorney position is a multifaceted role that I have spent my legal career preparing for. For me, having my family in Greenwood, working in the City, and serving the people of my community is a great honor that I hold near and dear to my heart. That is why I ask that you vote for me, Alex Gustafson, for Greenwood City Attorney so that I may truly focus on Greenwood’s future and making it the cornerstone of the River Valley.
