Race develops for Court of Appeals

Posted By on Tue, Apr 16, 2019 at 7:17 AM

A second candidate has announced for the Arkansas Court of Appeals seat that had been held by the late Judge David M. Glover.

STEPHANIE POTTER BARRETT: Court of Appeals candidate.
  • STEPHANIE POTTER BARRETT: Court of Appeals candidate.
Stephanie Potter Barrett of Texarkana, serving a second term as prosecuting attorney for the district covering Miller and Lafayette counties, announced for the seat yesterday. It will be on the ballot in March.

Emily White, currently serving by appointment as a district court judge in Malvern, announced earlier.

District 4 on the Court of Appeals covers 15 counties in western Arkansas — Sebastian, Logan, Scott, Yell, Garland, Montgomery, Polk, Sevier, Howard, Pike, Clark, Hot Spring, Hempstead, Little River and Miller Counties.

Noted in passing: The 12-member Court of Appeals currently only has one elected woman member, Chief Judge Rita Gruber. Gov. Asa Hutchinson recently appointed Meredith Switzer to serve in Glover's seat until the election, but she can't run to succeed herself.

Some quick ideas on that:
