Gov. Hutchinson sets town halls. Little Rock omitted.

Posted By on Wed, Oct 10, 2018 at 3:58 PM

Gov. Asa Hutchinson has scheduled a series of town hall around the state beginning Monday. The stops don't include Little Rock

It's styled as official business, but it amounts to state-backed campaigning. The purpose will be to "discuss his efforts to transform state government, reduce taxes, increase teacher salary, improve highways, and other topics." In the spring he had town halls in Jonesboro and El Dorado and Northwest Arkansas.

The coming meetings:

* Conway — 11:30 a.m. Monday, Oct. 15, UCA Downtown, 1105 W. Oak.

* Jonesboro: 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23, ASU Cooper Alumni Center.

* Hot Springs, 11:30 a.m., Friday, Oct. 26, location to be announced.

* Fort Smith: Noon Tuesday, Oct. 30, the Blue Lion at UA-Fort Smith.

* Northwest Arkansas, 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30, details to be announced.

Hutchinson spokesman J.R. Davis, asked about the omission of a Little Rock stop, said, "The governor is here all the time and it’s important to get out into other parts of the state."

Some quick ideas on that:
