City board candidacy

Posted By on Fri, Jul 11, 2008 at 9:07 AM

It's getting to be time to talk city politics. Lynn Hamilton, vice president of operations for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, told downtown Little Rock neighbors last night that he was circulating petitions to run for an at-large seat on the City Board. Terms for all three at-large seats, currently held by Dean Kumpuris, Joan Adcock and Gene Fortson, expire at the end of this year.

Noted: in a previous stint in public service as a North Little Rock School Board member, Hamilton led the abrupt removal of the North Little Rock Classroom Teachers Association as a representative for NLR teachers.
