How about this? All kinds of people would like to get the work as legal counsel for Little Rock National Airport, now that Mayor Mark Stodola's firm has given up the work to avoid even the appearance of conflict. (Members of the city board appoint the commission that governrs the airport.)
Interesting. Applicants for the work include current City Director Brad Cazort. Said he about serving on the board and serving as airport attorney: "I think it is a conflict of interest, and that's why if they end up retaining me, I would resign from the city board."
The Little Rock city attorney's office also proposes to take over the work. Other applicants: Hope, Fuqua and Campbell; Williams and Anderson; Rose Law Firm; Patton, Roberts, McWilliams, Capshaw; Friday, Eldredge and Clark; Cross, Gunter, Witherspoonm Galchus; Mitchell Williams; Dover, Dixon, Horne; Quattlebaum, Grooms, Tull and Burrow; Wright, Lindsey and Jennings; Jack Lyons and Jones; Watts, Donovan and Tilley; Eichenbaum, Liles, and Heister; and Gill, Elrod, Ragon, Owen, and Sherman.
