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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    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.
