Boss Hays

Posted By on Mon, Feb 16, 2009 at 8:38 AM

The Democrat-Gazette got around today to a subject that North Little Rock bloggers have been harping about for months -- Mayor Pat Hays' disdain for an open process for selecting members of city boards and commissions. He'll do it, thank you. (When he gets around to it. Many terms expire without prompt reappointments.)

Credit Hays for candor: He says he's of no mind to open the process to any but his hand-picked people. Remember the George Fisher cartoon where everybody in the legislature looked like Orval Faubus? It's getting that way over in NLR, heading toward a quarter-century of the commodore's iron-fisted rule. Voters seem to like it.

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson apparently felt the burn from KARK's exclusive Tuesday night on his plans to cut state support of War Memorial Stadium in half beginning July 1, 2018. He has a so-far secret plan to make the stadium self-sustaining. We bet that doesn't include state support.
