Losing GOP candidate gets $108,000 state job

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.
