Alderman Gaines resigns

Posted By on Fri, Nov 20, 2009 at 3:47 PM

North Little Rock Alderman Cary Gaines, who represents Ward 3, has resigned from the City Council. He confirmed to me last week that he faced federal investigation related to the indictment of an accused Cabot bookmaker and drug dealer who was also accused of trying to influence Gaines to steer city business to an unnamed contractor to generate kickbacks to repay debts owed the Cabot man by Gaines and the contractor.

Here's Gaines brief resignation letter. He had called me to say it would be coming and that he would have no further comment, on advice of his attorney, Chuck Banks.

Gaines was elected to a four-year term in 2006. The Council can fill the remainder of his four year term by appointment or special election.
