Beebe fills PSC slot

Posted By on Wed, Oct 10, 2007 at 2:07 PM

Gov. Mike Beebe has named Little Rock lawyer Colette Honorable, currently director of the Arkansas Workforce Investment Board, to the vacancy on the state Public Service Commission created when Sandra Hochstetter spun through the regulatory agency's doors to employment for a utility she'd been regulating. Honorable, 37, a Little Rock lawyer who had been Beebe's chief of staff when he was attorney general, is a fine pick. I know her from work on the Central High historic site. She's smart and capable, and friendly in the bargain. I've always figured her for a judicial candidate some day. I asked her about that Saturday during a rally for school board candidate Micheal Daugherty and, in retrospect, I see now why her answer seemed a little non-commital.

The governor also named Ken Ferguson of Pine Bluff to succeed Honorable in the Workforce Board job. He has been director of human resources for Pine Bluff.

  • 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.

    State Auditor Andrea Lea, who began her tenure in statewide office with a degree of competence unseen in some other Republican counterparts (think Treasurer Dennis Milligan particularly), is becoming more deeply mired in a political scandal.
