Kathy Webb says no to county judge race

Posted By on Mon, Oct 28, 2013 at 6:52 PM

I received this e-mail just now from former state Rep. Kathy Webb :

In the past several days I have been asked by a number of people in our county to consider a race for Pulaski County Judge. I am honored by the outpouring of support and confidence I have received. However, after careful
thought, prayer and consultation with my family, I have decided that now is not the time for me to run. As many of you know, I am going through treatments for breast cancer. I am doing well; however, it will be awhile before I am 100% and my health must come first at this time.

Additionally, my job with the Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance and my commitment to help end hunger in our state is a driving challenge in my life.

I remain passionate about our state and community and hope to seek public office again. I believe I still have much to give in public service. Thank you all for your ongoing support. 

That leaves Democrats Barry Hyde, a former state representative, and Wilma Walker of College Station, a JP and former state representative, in the race.
