The daily list of candidate filings from the Little Rock city clerk indicates Ellen Brown has filed as a candidate for director from Ward 6, currently represented by Doris Wright, who has filed for re-election.
No biographical information is readily available. But an Ellen Brown, deputy director at Heifer USA, is in her second term as Ward 6 representative on the city Racial and Cultural Diversity Commission. I’m checking to see if the candidate is the same.
Of the six board races on the ballot, the only other one contested so far is Ward 5, where incumbent Lance Hines has drawn Mazhil Vannan Rajendran as an opponent. Filing continues through Aug. 19.
