Another unsuccessful Republican candidate has found a good state job as consolation.

Former state Rep. Ann Clemmer of Benton, who lost a primary race for 2nd District Congress last year, will start work Monday as senior associate director of academic affairs at the Arkansas Department of Higher Education. The job pays $108,000.

It is graded as a professional and executive position and the opening was not required to be advertised before filling by outgoing Director Shane Broadway. She succeeds the retiring Cynthia Moten.

Brett Powell, currently an OBU official, is to succeed Broadway on confirmation of Gov. Asa Hutchinson.

Clemmer holds bachelor's and master's degrees in political science from Arkansas State University and has been, since 1992, an instructor at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. She was a program coordinator for Mississippi County Community College from 1984-1992.

Broadway is going to work as ASU's lobbyist.

Stacy Hurst, who lost a Republican race for state House, was hired as the $109,000 director of the Department of Arkansas Heritage.

    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.
