A FIGHTER FOR ARKANSAS FAMILIES
Celeste Williams has dedicated her life to serving others - as a family nurse practitioner, educator, Mom, and foster parent. After 20 years as a nurse, she realized not all problems she sees can be fixed in the exam room.
"I am fighting for a world where we can all succeed,
where getting sick doesn’t mean you go broke,
where our children have a world class education,
and we restore dignity to workers in America."
- Celeste Williams

Celeste is a champion for healthcare &
Celeste believes in advocating to expand economic opportunity and
create good-paying jobs for Arkansas working families.
As a mom and nurse practitioner, she has what it takes to fight for common-sense policies that grow our economy and give all Arkansans the chance to thrive in their communities. She is dedicated to protecting and expanding all Arkansans’ access to high-quality, affordable health care. Celeste believes that our seniors, many of whom are living on a fixed income, shouldn’t have to choose between food and paying for their medications, she will work to lower drug prices for Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries.
Celeste is concerned about the high cost of pre-k and higher education. She believes saddling our youth with massive personal and national debt, stagnant wages, and leaving them a country with an uninhabitable planet is morally reprehensible. She is concerned by the fact that 43% of Americans cannot meet their basic needs, giving people a ladder out of poverty through educational and economic opportunity strengthens our middle class and grows our economy creating more revenue to be reinvested in Arkansas communities. Celeste believes in a worker's bill of rights that protects Arkansans. Celeste will fight to defend hardworking Arkansans’ economic security.
