Michael John Lamoureux (born June 2, 1976) is a lawyer and Republican politician from Russellville, Arkansas. He won a special election on December 16, 2009, to fill the District 4 seat in the Arkansas State Senate formerly held by Republican Sharon Trusty.[1][2] In a low-turnout contest, Lamoureux polled 2,955 votes (70.1 percent); the Democrat John Burnett trailed with 899 votes (21.3 percent). The remaining 8.6 percent of the ballots went to the Independent Tachany Evans.[3]

Lamoureux was born in Springfield, Missouri and later moved to Dover in Pope County and then the county seat of Russellville.

In 2011, Senator Lamoureux introduced a bill to double vehicle title fees.[4]

He sits on the board of directors of the conservative interest group, the American Legislative Exchange Council.

Prior to his Senate service, in District 16 since January 2013, Lamoureux was a state representative. He was elected without opposition in 2004. He did not seek reelection to the House in 2008 and was succeeded in January 2009 in that position by his fellow Republican, Andrea Lea of Russellville.
