I've mentioned before Trio's restaurateur Capi Peck's plan to run for the Ward 4 seat on the Little Rock Board of Directors. She makes it official at 11:30 a.m. Monday at the restaurant.

Her prepared resume:

Capi has lived in Ward 4 and owned her restaurant Trio’s for the past 30 plus years. She is the fourth generation in her family to have worked in the hospitality industry in Little Rock. Trio’s is the only remaining original tenant in Pavilion in the Park and has won countless awards as an independent restaurant.

Capi has a life-long passion and commitment to her hometown. She is a Hall High School alumna and association member. For decades, she has given back to her community through charitable and community events including Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance, Our House, Thea Foundation and the Ronald McDonald House.

Capi is a member of temple B’nai Israel where she formerly taught Sunday School. She is a former president of the Arkansas Restaurant Association and served on the Public Health Advisory Board for 8 years. She is a current member and former vice president of the Little Rock Advertising and Promotion Commission and member of the Central Arkansas Executives Association.

Capi believes in Little Rock’s future. She believes in the importance of continuing to invest in our community and improving public safety. She supports economic growth projects and believes building a vibrant downtown area will improve the quality of life for all of our city’s citizens
Brad Cavort currently holds the seat. He hasn't announced whether he plans to seek re-election. Ward 4 is only the ward seat on the ballot this year. At-large seats held by Joan Adcock, Dean Kumpuris and Gene Fortson are on the ballot. Molly Miller has announced to oppose Adcock. Clayton Johnson has said he'll run for an at-large set yet to be determined.

  • 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.
