Former City Director Larry Lichty told me earlier this week that he was committed to filing for the Ward 3 seat on the Little Rock City Board currently held by Stacy Hurst. (I haven't heard yet if she'll be running again.)
Forget Lichty. He wrote:
After additional thoughtful consideration prompted by several conversations with people whose judgment I value and trust, I have decided not to file for City Board as previously indicated. I sincerely regret that hasty and ill-advised reply to your initial inquiry on Monday, and there will no doubt be other ways in which I can render public service to Little Rock in the future .
UPDATE: I'm guessing the change of plans arises from news that Hurst will seek re-election. There had been widespread rumors that she would not.
