Election — and open line

Posted By on Sun, Jun 27, 2010 at 4:23 PM

A news release has arrived from James Dillon, who describes himself as retired Army and former LR police traffic safety officer and who says he'll run for the Ward 3 seat on the Little Rock City Board of Directors this fall. That's Stacy Hurst's seat.

And why not just make this tonight's open line, too?


James T. Dillon for Board of Directors Ward 3

Little Rock, Arkansas- June 28, 2010

Today longtime Little Rock resident, James Timothy Dillon, has announced his candidacy for Little Rock Board of Directors for Ward 3.

Dillon was born and raised here in Little Rock. He attended Good Counsel for elementary and is a Catholic High graduate, class of 1978. For a few years Dillon worked for the Arkansas Travelers before joining the United States Army in 1982. He retired from active duty in 1996, and worked for the Little Rock Police Department as a Traffic Safety Officer until 2005.

Dillon states that it is time for a change and he believes that Little Rock needs to move in a different direction. Little Rock has fallen behind and needs to move forward, and keep pace with other cities.

One of Dillon’s priorities is public safety, which he believes should always be a top priority of the city. A large concern is safety in city parks, as well as generating more commerce for the city of Little Rock which could boost job availability.

“The Board of Directors is the office of the people, and I want to give it back to them” says Dillon.

Dillon and those involved in his campaign know that there is a lot of work ahead, but all involved are willing to do what they can to make a strong grassroots operation. Dillon has already been visiting various neighborhoods within Ward 3, and plans to talk and listen to the people in order to be a true representative.

Please address all inquires to:
James T. Dillon
