School board member files for legislature

Posted By on Thu, Mar 1, 2012 at 2:16 PM

Final day filings at the legislature included the Democratic candidacy of Charles Armstrong of Little Rock, a member of the Little Rock School Board, for state House of Representatives, District 30, an open seat. Norith Ellison and Tommy Branch Jr. of Little Rock also filed for the seat.

Armstrong couldn't serve on the School Board as a legislator. His School Board seat is to be on the ballot in September, but filing doesn't begin until after the May Democratic primary, which will decide the race for District 30.

Speaking of the Little Rock School Board: One new candidate is already out working with a webpage in placeLeslie Plowman Fisken, who'll run for Zone 3, now represented by Melanie Fox. Fox is not seeking re-election.
