Bryant voters apparently oust Republican Dabbs

  • ALLEN SCOTT: Narrow winner in Bryant mayor's race.

Bryant Mayor Jill "Republican" Dabbs
lost her bid for a third term last night to Bryant High science teacher and alderman Allen Scott.

According to final results in the Benton Courtier, Scott won by 30 votes, 3,249-3,219.

Dabbs tenure was drama-filled thanks to her personality. Recent days had been marked by controversies about her alleged bullying of city employees and her ire over a dance party at the city pool by an African-American group. Video of partyers twerking went viral and enraged Dabbs. She earned her nickname by trying to make Republican Dabbs her legal name for voting purposes when she first ran for the non-partisan office, a political play in Republican-red Saline County.
