Candidates for Little Rock Board of Directors can begin raising money June 1 and two previously announced candidates — Capi Peck for the Ward 4 seat held by Brad Cazort and Molly Miller, who will oppose At-Large Director Joan Adcock — have scheduled events that day.

I found Miller's announcement of an event interesting. See if you catch my drift.

LITTLE ROCK – On Monday, May 9th, Molly Miller announced her first official campaign event – a launch party to be held at U.S. Pizza Hillcrest on June 1st from 5-7 p.m. This event will serve as a meet-and-greet as well as the first fundraiser for Miller’s campaign for At-Large City Director, Position 10.

Miller describes herself as a pro-growth progressive and intends to promote policies that will help Little Rock become a strong city, including a more equitable distribution of resources throughout the city, investment in a stronger public transportation system, and economic development in areas that have traditionally been left behind when it comes to economic opportunity. Additionally, Miller is an advocate for returning the Little Rock School District to local control and the development of alternatives to the AHTD’s current proposals for the expansion of I-30.

Miller has already begun work to develop a strong coalition of supporters throughout Little  Rock, including Rett Tucker and Jimmy Moses of Moses Tucker Realty, Senator Joyce Elliott, Representative Clarke Tucker, Former Representative John Charles Edwards, and local advocates for a variety of issues including a more bike-friendly Little Rock, improved  development at the neighborhood level, and policies that support the LGBT community, among others.

Miller invites anyone who is interested in learning more about her campaign to attend this  event, ask questions, and learn more about her campaign. Miller can be reached via e-mail, phone, Facebook (, or her website (
(No, it's not merely Miller's solid progressive credentials that draw my attention, though they'd be a welcome breath of fresh air on the City Board.)
