City board races taking shape

Posted By on Tue, Aug 3, 2010 at 11:26 AM

We checked in again today with the Little Rock city clerk on who's been picking up petitions to file for City Board or mayor. Filing opens tomorrow and runs through Aug. 24.

Mayor Mark Stodola has picked up a petition, as expected. (He'll formally file tomorrow.)

The full rundown so far on the jump, but this was interesting:

Former City Director Larry Lichty has picked up petitions to run for the Ward 3 seat again and he tells me he is firmly committed to making the race. That seat is currently held by Director Stacy Hurst. She hasn't picked up petitions yet. We've tried to reach her about her plans, but no return call so far. James Dillon has also picked up petitions for Ward 3. You can check out Lichty's thinking at his weekly blog.

The Little Rock City Clerk says that nine more candidates have picked up petitions to qualify them for the November ballot, adding to the five we've previously reported. Candidates must gather 50 signatures of registered voters to qualify. The filing period is August 4 - 24. Ward 1, currently held by Erma Hendrix, is shaping up to be particularly interesting, with three candidates and Hendrix seeking signatures at this point. Meanwhile, two candidates — including former Ward 3 director Larry Lichty — have picked up petitions to run in Ward 3, currently held by Stacy Hurst. Hurst herself has not picked up petitions as of this writing. Will she run? Stay tuned.

Latest to pick up petitions:

Glen Schwarz, Mayor
Herbert Broadway, Ward 1
Larry Lichty, Ward 3
James Dillon, Ward 3
Mark Stodola, Mayor
B. J. Wyrick, Ward 7
Ken Richardson, Ward 2
Doris Wright, Ward 6
Erma Hendrix, Ward 1


Previously reported:

Gregory Hines, Ward 5
Kevin Dedner, Ward 1
Robert Webb, Ward 1
Connie Hamzy, Ward 2
James Withers, Mayor

Michael Keck is currently Ward 5
Erma Hendrix is currently Ward 1
Ken Richardson is currently Ward 2
Stacy Hurst is currently Ward 3
