Confusion over Benton Ward 4, Position 1 vote

October 20, 2014

On Oct. 7, Brad Moore announced he would be moving to Northwest Arkansas and subsequently would be dropping out of his race for re-election as alderman for Ward 4, Position 1. Following the announcement, it was assumed that his opponent, Jim Gardner, would take Moore's seat on the city council. Due to filing deadlines and election guidelines, Moore will remain on the ballot and his votes will count.

Moore continues to prepare for his move to Northwest Arkansas and has attempted to clear up the ballot issue.
