How is it legal for Mayor Stodola to keep the $78,412 that he raised when he had no opponent in the last cycle. Per the city code: Sec. 2-389, I thought he had 30 days to either donate the surplus to charity or give the money to the city general fund. That money should be in the city's general fund building side walks or doing something for the people of Little Rock. by keeping the money he is NOT entitled to, isn't Mayor Stodola stealing from the people of Little Rock. I'd also like to know why it was in the state's interest to pass a law that requires mayors in cities with city managers to be paid comparably to the City Manager. Why would an honorary mayor be paid similarly to the person actually doing the job of running the city? Who in the state legislature came up with this brilliant law to help Mark Stodola line his pockets?
