Three more candidates have filed for LR School Board

Posted By on Tue, Jul 10, 2012 at 11:29 AM

The Pulaski clerk's office reports that three more candidates submitted petitions this morning to file for Little Rock School Board, including Zone 7 incumbent Dianne Curry. Frances Johnson of 6510 Mabelvale Cutoff also filed for Zone 7. They join Tanya Dixon, who filed yesterday.

The clerk said Tranett Walker-Brooks of 8609 Essex Drive filed successfully for Zone 6 (her petitions were still being checked when I first posted). Michael Peterson and Laveta Wills-Hale filed yesterday for Zone 6, currently represented by Charles Armstrong. Armstrong isn't running because he's been elected to the Arkansas House. Peterson mentioned, by the way, in a chat with me yesterday that he expected state Rep. John Walker, a lawyer and powerful figure in LR school affairs, to support Wills-Hale. "That's fine," Peterson said. "I'm independent." He's a retired 38-year district employee, his last 17 as principal at Metropolitian High, which specializes in vocational training. PS: If you're keeping score, Attorney Walker has had differences with Board member Curry and is expected to throw his support to Tanya Dixon.

Leslie Plowman Fisken remained unopposed for Zone 3 to succeed Melanie Fox, who didn't seek another term.

No new candidates from yesterday in North Little Rock. No contested races emerged.
