A second Bryant alderman has filed to join the city’s mayoral race in November.
Adrian Henley, 36, filed for the position Tuesday — four days after fellow Alderman Randy Cox, 54, filed for the same spot. Henley — who has served three terms as an alderman — is devoting his time to the campaign, and Cox retired from the city’s Fire Department in June 2012 and first served on the council in 2013.
Jill Dabbs, 41, has served as the city’s mayor since 2011. The mayor earns $68,869 annually.
Benton Mayor David Mattingly, 72, refiled for the position, which earns $68,000 annually, in his city. He has served in that capacity for one term. As of closing Friday, no one else had filed.
Alexander Alderman Farren Wadley, 45, is also vying for that city’s mayor seat. Wadley, a martial arts instructor, will run against Corliss “Jerry” Ball, 82, who is retired.
Currently, Michelle Hobbs holds that position, which pays $20,160 annually. She was appointed after a 2012 recall election that ousted former Mayor Paul Mitchell from office.
The terms for the three citys' mayors are for four years.
Filing for municipal seats runs through noon Aug. 15.
