As indicated yesterday, Molly Miller has announced to challenge the re-election of Little Rock City Director Joan Adcock to a position elected by voters citywide.
She takes on a tough veteran campaigner who’ll likely enjoy the business establishment financial support that invariably produces victory in the expense citywide races for three at-large seats on the board.
But this is a year of insurgency, isn’t it? Maybe the “Feel the Bern” crowd could also get fired up about a city board candidate.
Today, Molly Miller officially announced her candidacy for Little Rock City Board of Directors, At-Large Position 10. Miller is a pro-growth progressive who believes that Little Rock is at a crossroads of economic development. On election day, voters will make a choice between innovation, fair business practices and progress or the status quo, stagnation and a shortfall of economic development in all zip codes. Miller supports consideration of alternative plans for the I-30 expansion, the continued rebuilding of the Little Rock School District and increasing connectivity between different areas of the city through improving public transportation and bicycle access.
“For Little Rock to become a stronger city, we need forward- thinking, hard-working leaders at all levels of government,” Miller said. “The status quo can blind us to opportunities that can bring the city we love to new levels of success and create a better sense of community.”
Miller will work with neighborhood associations and engage citizens directly to ensure that the concerns of all Little Rock citizens are being addressed. She will collaborate with other Board members to give every Ward in Little Rock the attention it deserves from an At-Large Board Member.
Miller received her Bachelor of Arts in Politics from Hendrix College and a Master of Public Health from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Miller will also graduate in May with a Master of Public Service from the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service, where she worked with a variety of community partners including UAMS, Arkansas Community Organizations, and the Arkansas Community Health Worker Association.
Miller is happy to answer any questions regarding her campaign by phone at (501) 515-7463 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
