New alderman for North Little Rock's Ward 3 sworn in
New alderman for North Little Rock's Ward 3 sworn in

Living in North Little Rock for just over two years, I've taken the liberty to engage the city's elected and appointed leadership multiple times, if nothing else then for the sake of doing so. But prior to Steve Baxter being sworn in, North Little Rock's third ward has had some very bumpy roads when it comes to elected leadership at city hall. After the last two alderman resigned, it is great to finally have quality representation at the North Little Rock City hall.

 A special run-off election took place to replace one of the alderman at the end of March. Featured were; Jimmy Phillips, former alderman appointed by the mayor and city council as a replacement, and Bruce Foutch a new hopefull and now Alderman-Elect. A total of 582 people voted giving Foutch a 60 vote lead and also giving him his earned title. 

An interesting note is that there are 8,763 registered voters in North Little Rock, just over a 6% turn-out.

Bruce Foutch will be sworn in Monday, April 11 at 6:30 pm before North Little Rock City council resumes its normal meeting agenda.
