State Rep. Fred Love moves up in new Pulaski County administration

County Judge Barry Hyde, who succeeded retiring Buddy Villines Jan. 1, is making changes at the Pulaski County Courthouse.

State Rep. Fred Love of Little Rock, who had been a county grants administrator, has been named director of community services, replacing La Verne Paige, who had held the job for 16 years. The office provides technical assistance to unincorporated communities, including in winning grants for brownfields and the like. Paige no longer will work for the county.

I have a call in to Hyde, who's apparently in a staff meeting. Rumors circulate some changes in other county positions under the judge, which would not be unusual in the political world.

UPDATE: Love said he's moving from a $40,000 salary in his old job to about $70,000 as director. He said work would continue on such projects as sewer line extensions in Sweet Home and to serve Pulaski County School District schools in that part of the county. Love said he takes leave to fulfill his legislative duties.

UPDATE II: Judge Hyde said he was still making the rounds of meetings with county departments and wasn't ready to say what other changes might be afoot. He did promise a social media presence for the county was among his priorities.
