Police and fire dominate non-resident LR employees

My suspicion was correct. The Little Rock police and fire departments tilt most heavily to non-city residency among the city workforce. City Manager Bruce Moore sent me the following list today at my request:

UPDATE: City Director Erma Hendrix has revised a proposed ordinance to require that all new city employees be city residents and remain as city residents to remain employed. It will be discussed at a City Board meeting next week. Chances of Hendrix getting consideration for this from other board members appear small, which is too bad. Why do even city directors hate the city of Little Rock so much that they pour tax money into the pockets of employees who take it elsewhere?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
