The city manager is safe

Posted By on Fri, Jul 20, 2007 at 4:58 PM

Re the election on mayoral powers and some citizen comments at a public hearing last night that the change could somehow jeopardize the popular city manager Bruce Moore (which I don't credit by the way): This statement was issued Friday:

Statement from Little City Directors Kumpuris, Hurst, Keck, Cazort, Fortson, Wright and Mayor Stodola

In Friday’s Arkansas Democrat Gazette, it was reported that statements were made Thursday evening at a community meeting in the Willie Hinton Center accusing members of the Little Rock Board of having secret plans in the works to fire City Manager Bruce Moore. We would like to be perfectly clear: no such plan exists. The Board of Directors has full confidence in Bruce Moore; we believe he is an asset to Little Rock. He is a true professional who does outstanding work.

We are saddened by these baseless accusations, and want there to be no doubt that our belief that strengthening the office of mayor to make it more accountable and responsive to the residents of Little Rock has absolutely nothing to do with Bruce Moore or his job performance. We look forward to the day when a stronger mayor works hand in hand with Bruce Moore to make Little Rock the next great Southern city

  • ADEQ denies C&H Hog Farm permit

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
