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.

    Private clubs apparently have won their battle against earlier closing hours, based on a "compromise" revealed at the City Board meeting last night.
  • The Kochs, Tom Cotton and their dislike of helping farmers

    The Koch political lobby is trying mightily to pretend it supports American farmers and that Tom Cotton's vote against the farm bill isn't a measure of farm support. A new report from a Democratic organization blows that dishonest messaging out of the water.
  • A tree grows in Little Rock

    When Darla talks about the tree, she calls it "he" sometimes, blurring the seam between the tree and the memory of her son.
