NLR chief's support for new mayor pays off

TV PAYS: Danny Bradley in Joe Smith ad.
  • TV PAYS: Danny Bradley in Joe Smith ad.
North Little Rock Police Chief Danny Bradley's televised endorsement of mayoral candidate Joe Smith has gotten the most tangible sort of reward from the incoming mayor — a job. Presumably the almost $100,000 a year he's to earn as Smith's chief of staff can add to accrued retirement benefits from his years in policing sooner or later.

But I'd be remiss if I didn't acknowledge that this news was forecast Dec. 19 by reader "Tired," whose comment then I reprint today:

So……the whispers about what’s coming in North Little Rock politics is that after Pat Hays retires at full benefits from the Mayor’s office in January, he will replace Mike Russ at the NLR Electric Department and current Chief of Police, Danny Bradley, will retire with full benefits and replace Joe Smith’s position as he graduates to the mayor’s office. All with top end city salaries and additional benefits. Puts a whole new slant on “double dipping” don’t you think, Max Brantley? Hey, it’s just city tax dollars, not a non-profit. Wait and watch.

No word as yet on the second half of this prediction.

    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.
