Clayton Johnson, a high school teacher who’s long taken an interest in City Hall affairs, says he’s firmed up plans to run against incumbent Gene Fortson for the at-large Postion 9 seat on the Little Rock City Board of Directors.

He says he’ll offer change while Fortson will offer status quo. More later in a formal announcement in August. Bernard Hochstetter has also picked up petitions to qualify for the Position 9 seat, but hasn’t announced candidacy yet.
