Filing for county offices finished yesterday, too, and I guess the big news was the re-election filing by the Faulkner County clerk
, Republican Margaret Darter,
charged with a crime for backdating county officials' ethics reports.
I checked Pulaski County filings this morning
. Here's the upshot:
* One countywide race: Democratic Sheriff Doc Holladay
drew a Libertarian opponent, Patrick Mulligan.
* The Quorum Court will remain Democratic majority, with eight Democratic JPs unopposed and five Republicans unopposed.
Contested races: District 3 JP Kathy Lewiso
n drew a Republican opponent, Lynn Jacuzzi
, as she always does. Her lime green signs will be back. Republican Andrew Norwood
is challenging incumbent Democrat JP Teresa Coney
in District 7. District 5 Democratic incumbent Lillie McMullen
has a Democratic challenger, Jason Smedley.
Everybody else got off without opposition, from County Judge Barry Hyde on down to the constables.
