Shepherd makes splash with nonpartisan bill

Arkansas House Rep. Matthew Shepherd will be giving an update as to the goings on so far in Little Rock this session on Saturday at 8:30 a.m. at the El Dorado Chamber of Commerce.

Likely on his list of talking points, is H.B. 2093, filed Monday among four other last-minute bills by Shepherd, which would abolish partisan elections for a variety of state, district, county, municipal and township offices. The potential legislation would also add prosecuting attorney to the list of nonpartisan, electable positions.

UPDATE: He may even mention H.B. 2094 which would change the definition of a “child” in the law concerning sexual exploitation from someone who is 17 to 18.

    Not sure his partisan idea is that great. You end up with 3 or 3 people running and end up with a run off which then most of the people don’t vote in.

    I will direct your attention to our last mayoral election.
