Filing for seats on the Little Rock Board of Directors begins July 24 and runs through Aug. 15, but potential candidates have begun picking up the packets necessary to complete filing requirements.

The city clerk’s office keeps a list of those who’ve picked up packets. It’s not a commitment to run and, in one case noted below, one person might have picked up for someone else.

But just to give you an idea of what MIGHT be shaping up, these are the packet pickups so far for the three at-large seats and the Ward 4 seat that will be on the ballot. At-large Directors Dean Kumpuris and Joan Adcock are planning to seek re-election. Director Gene Fortson in position 9, is not. Ward 4 Director Capi Peck is seeking re-election.

Help to Keep Great Journalism Alive in Arkansas

Arkansas Times needs to raise $25,000 to help fund our new agriculture and environment reporter, who comes to us with help from Report For America. Without a dedicated agriculture reporter, the stories of our state’s primary industry and its 243,000 workers remain untold. This isn’t just about news—it’s about recognizing the backbone of Arkansas’s economy. Every dollar you donate helps us reach our goal and keeps agriculture at the forefront of our community conversation. Act now; the stories of 19 million acres of forest and countless hardworking Arkansans depend on it.
