WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) today issued the following statement on the passing of Scott County Sheriff Cody Carpenter.
“Sheriff Carpenter, a dedicated public servant, gave his life trying to save those trapped by the terrible flooding in Western Arkansas. A leader who was never content sitting behind a desk, Sheriff Carpenter bravely put the safety of others before his own to protect those in harm’s way. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and the community during this difficult time.
We continue to pray for those missing as a result of the flooding. Please keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers.”
