We checked in again today with the Little Rock city clerk on who’s been picking up petitions to file for City Board or mayor. Filing opens tomorrow and runs through Aug. 24.
Mayor Mark Stodola has picked up a petition, as expected. (He’ll formally file tomorrow.)
The full rundown so far on the jump, but this was interesting:
Former City Director Larry Lichty has picked up petitions to run for the Ward 3 seat again and he tells me he is firmly committed to making the race. That seat is currently held by Director Stacy Hurst. She hasn’t picked up petitions yet. We’ve tried to reach her about her plans, but no return call so far. James Dillon has also picked up petitions for Ward 3. You can check out Lichty’s thinking at his weekly blog.
