Courtney Banks-McLaughlin was elected in November 2019 by the residents of District 8 to serve her first term on the Fayetteville City Council. Courtney hails from Detroit, Michigan and chose Fayetteville as her home in 2009.  

She is a graduate of Denby Technical High School and Arkansas Baptist College, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in business administration. Courtney earned her Master of Arts in human resource management from Webster University in 2008. 

Courtney understands the challenges Fayetteville will face as it continues to grow and become more urbanized. She welcomes the opportunity to create an environment that allows our children, families, and businesses the opportunity to thrive. She believes we must work together as a community and city to delve into the root causes that threaten the health and safety of our community. Most importantly, Courtney believes we must strive to attract jobs that allow more residents to enjoy a better quality of life.

She has demonstrated her zeal and commitment to our community as a small business owner and as an advocate for veterans and their families, along with her community involvement with groups that serve our elderly, homeless and youth.

Courtney is married to Melvin McLaughlin, an 82nd Airborne Division disabled veteran, and is the proud mother of five children and one grandchild. The McLaughlin family are members of Lewis Chapel Missionary Baptist Church, where Courtney serves on the Young Adult Mission. She is an active member of OES and many other organizations. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling and leading her Girl Scout Troop.

Courtney is thankful for her constituents electing her to serve as a district representative for the City of Fayetteville and for allowing her to be a voice for her community.
