Final count: 3 at-large incumbents, 5 challengers

Posted By on Mon, Aug 20, 2012 at 4:31 PM

Little Rock's city clerk has completed validating the signatures on petitions for candidates for City Board and has reported the final result: Four city directors (3 at-large and the Ward 4 director) and five challengers will be on the ballot. Five others who filed for at-large positions did not have the 50 valid signatures required of candidates.

Dr. Lynette Bryant, who the clerk's office Friday believed was one short, had 55 valid signatures on the office's recount today, and will run against Position 8 Director Dr. Dean Kumpuris.

Lynn Hamilton, former Judge Willard Proctor and Glen Schwartz will run against Gene Fortson for the Position 9 seat on the board.

Robert Webb will run against Joan Adcock for Position 10. Ward 4 director Brad Cazort drew no opposition.

Coming up short were Adam Lansky, who'd filed as a candidate against Kumpuris (48 names), Anthony Hampton, who'd filed for Fortson's seat (44 names), and Clayton Johnson (47), Kaitlin Lott (46) and Lloyd Young (47), who'd filed against Adcock.

City Clerk Susan Langley said some of the names on Bryant's petition were barely legible, but she was able to finally determine they were valid.

    The Arkansas Department of Transportation has made a few changes to the 30 Crossing project that will widen the seven-mile Interstate 30 corridor through North Little Rock and Little Rock, the most significant for downtown Little Rock being the creation of a four-lane Second Street from Mahlon Martin Drive east of I-30 to Cumberland Street west of I-30. The new street would serve as relief from traffic to and from the interstate, to be concentrated at Fourth Street.
