JANAN DAVIS: Judge candidate.
Another candidate has announced for an open Little Rock District Court judgeship
, the criminal division that Alice Lightle
vacated when she moved to Colorado.
She is JaNan Arnold Davis,
who's been Maumelle city attorney and a prosecutor and is now a lawyer with Rainwater, Holt and Sexton. Its website indicates she often represents county governments. Her announcement said she'd been endorsed by the Maumelle Fraternal Order of Police.
Other candidates for the seat, being filled until next year's election by an appointee who cannot run for the seat, are Deputy Prosecutor Melanie Martin, LaTonya Austin
and Peggy Egan
, a public defender.
