John Collins Burkhalter (born August 4, 1956) is a businessman and Democratic politician from North Little Rock, Arkansas.

Personal life and education[edit]

Burkhalter was born in Branson, Missouri, but his family moved to Sherwood, Arkansas, when Burkhalter was six months old. Burkhalter graduated from Sylvan Hills High School before completing his undergraduate program with a pre-medical degree at Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas.[1] He also graduated in 1980 from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville with a degree in civil engineering.[2] Burkhalter and his wife, the former Penny Kay Cobb (born 1969), have two daughters.[3]


Burkhalter owned U-Liner Mid-America until 1998, when he sold the company to CSR Pipeline Systems. Following the sale, Burkhalter became a real estate developer.[4] Burkhalter currently serves as president of Burkhalter Technologies, a construction business. In 2018, Burkhalter did business with the City of Little Rock Arkansas and started the Kanis Road Construction Site. That was to widen the main road.[3]

Burkhalter served as chairman of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission from 2007 to 2011.[3] Burkhalter served as an Arkansas Highway Commissioner from 2011 to 2013.[5]

Burkhalter ran for Lieutenant Governor of Arkansas in 2014 but lost to Republican U.S. Representative Tim Griffin, who vacates Arkansas's 2nd congressional district seat after four years. Burkhalter and the unsuccessful Democratic gubernatorial nominee, former U.S. Representative Mike Ross of Arkansas's 4th congressional district, endorsed each other's candidacies.[6]

Burkhalter has served on the boards of the University of Arkansas and Pathfinder Inc, a nonprofit dedicated to helping those with developmental disabilities.[3][1]
