Stodola to seek third term as Little Rock mayor

Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola speaks June 20, 2014, in Little Rock at the Arkansas Municipal League's 80th Convention.

Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola said Thursday that he will run for reelection in November.

Stodola, now in his second four-year term as mayor, said in a statement that the city has made "tremendous progress" on economic development and quality-of-life issues since he first took office in 2007.

“The city of Little Rock is quickly moving in a direction I am proud to be a part of,” Stodola said in the statement. “And I hope to be there to continue to steer our city into further areas of progress and growth in the future."

A news release on the announcement noted Stodola's leadership on Main Street redevelopment, the addition of LED lights to three downtown bridges, the recently-begun renovation of Robinson Center and the opening of a day resource center for the homeless among other initiatives.

Stodola, a Democrat, won 84 percent of the vote in his first reelection campaign in 2010.

Of course! Who wouldn't continue a mega-paying job where the 'responsibility' is shared with a City Manager? (who also makes the big bucks). I can't believe the city of Little Rock is so stupid.

I'm still waiting on my west L.R. Police substation. I will actively campaign against Stodola due to his unwillingness to get this done

He suckered people into passing that tax with a lot of promises that haven't been fulfilled. He'd make a real good used car salesman.

He seems okay to me, he is for things like more bicycle trails and not just about big development.

a) don't need a mayor AND a city manager. That was simply a stupid thing for LR voters to have passed.
.
b) we've had enough Stodola. Only way I vote for Stodola is if someone like, say, Buddy runs against him.

What bad timing: stodola is running for reelection while at the same time trying to get some "free" government to house the unlawful illegal alien alien invader parasites currently jumping the border at the invitation of Obama. He would rather get the business and a cut off the top instead of Fort Chafee getting the business. He is proud to tout Little Rock as a Sanctuary city for illegals. In case you haven't noticed, little rock looks more like a city in Mexico. Let's see if he can pull off reelection and loading the city up with more illegals.
