Little Rock property tax vote nearly unanimous

Posted By on Wed, Sep 12, 2012 at 6:05 AM

From the Pulaski County Election Commission, here's the precinct breakdown on last night's overwhelming vote in favor of pledging portions of a 3-mill property tax to street and drainage work.

Among 70 precincts, my quick scan turned up only two negative votes:

At Precincts 122, 2901 W. Roosevelt, and 129, 7501 Lindsey Road, votes went narrowly against the street bonds (31-34 and 10-13), but narrowly for the drainage bonds. Most other precincts were solidly for the tax, which passed overall with 76 percent of the vote. The pro-taxers at my Hillcrest poll, 109 and 112, varied between 85 and 89 percent approval.

In answer to reader question: 6,213 votes were cast, or 5.4 percent of the 115,371 voters registered to vote in the city.

  • Trump unfit

    Even as an oligarch, President Trump turns out to be breathtakingly incompetent. Is there any reason to suppose he's even loyal to the United States? Does he even understand the concept? Trump is loyal to Trump, and to his absurdly swollen ego. Nothing and nobody else.
  • You want tort reform? Try this.

    The nursing home industry and the chamber of commerce finally defeated the trial lawyers in the 2017 legislature. The Republican-dominated body approved a constitutional amendment for voters in 2018 that they'll depict as close to motherhood in goodness.
  • Goodbye, Mr. Trump

    It is hard to escape the feeling that the fortunes of President Trump and the country took a decisive, and for Trump a fatal, turn May 9-10, when the president fired the director of the FBI over its investigation of Russian efforts to swing the presidential election to him and the very next day shared top-secret intelligence with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting closed except to a Kremlin press aide toting electronic gear to capture the intimate session for Russians but not Americans.
  • Raw feelings in the Arkansas Justice Building over workload, pay

    Strained relations between the Arkansas Supreme Court and the Arkansas Court of Appeals broke into public view this week. I expect more to come.
