Lawrence County native Nathan Davis is field representative for U.S. Senator John Boozman's office in Jonesboro. Davis spoke about his own background and also about the many services offered to constituents through Sen. Boozman's seven state offices.

Davis grew up near Smithville and graduated from Lynn High School. His father, David Davis, is a former Lynn High School principal and teacher and now teaches classes at Williams Baptist College. His mother, Rita, formerly worked at Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

Davis said he earned a bachelor's degree in agriculture-education and a master's degree in business administration, both at Arkansas State University. For five years, he served as a police officer in Jonesboro. This background has proven to be very valuable to him as field representative, he added.

In December of 2010, Davis received a call from Senator Boozman's office about his becoming the Senator's field representative for Northeast Arkansas.

The Jonesboro office serves 12 counties, including Lawrence. The other seven Arkansas offices for Senator Boozman are located so that none or more than an hour and a half away.

As a field representative, Davis said he attends meetings, talks to constituents and assists them with government-related issues.

Some of the areas the office can assist with are issues with:

  • Internal Revenue Service.

  • Veteran's and military issues, such as disability and healthcare and service medals.

  • Medicare and Social Security.

  • State Department and immigration.

  • Department of Agriculture and FEMA issues.

  • Labor issues, such as Worker's Compensation.

  • HUD housing and many more.

The Veteran's Administration is often backlogged or an individual may have trouble obtaining a passport. Boozman's office can help speed up these application processes, Davis said.

If you are traveling to Washington, D.C., with two months notice, Boozman's office can set up meetings with the senator or tours of the Capitol, White House, Supreme Court building and more, said Davis.

Individuals can also submit a request to obtain a U.S. Flag that has flown over the Capitol. These flags come with a certificate but must be purchased.

Ten-week internships for college juniors and seniors are also available and can be applied for through Senator Boozman's website,
