Get your civic duty on



The Coalition of Little Rock Neighborhood's city board candidate forum will be broadcast twice a day, pending LRTV confirmation, every day between now and the Nov. 2 election.

The first showing was this morning between 9 a.m. and noon on the public access channel (cable channel 11 for Comcast customers, channel 99 for AT&T U-Verse customers) and the second will be tonight at 8 p.m. Those broadcast times should stand.

Questions put to the candidates for mayor and the city board included how they would rejuvenate neighborhoods east of University and south of I-630, create a healthier bus system, pay for sprawl, control crime and, last but not least, should the city keep paying the LR Chamber of Commerce $200,000 given the chamber's anti-minimum wage and other economic policies?

The forum starts with the ward candidates and ends with the mayoral candidates if you're not interested in watching all three hours.
