Join Us for the Inaugural Events for Mayor-Elect Frank Scott, Jr.

Franks’ campaign had a mission to unite Little Rock in every corner of our city, to move our community forward with bold new leadership ready to tackle the challenges we face, and take action to accomplish the dreams of our future. Now, we begin the journey together starting with the Unite Little Rock Inauguration.

On New Year's’ Day, Frank D. Scott, Jr. will be sworn in as the 73rd Mayor of Little Rock, and immediately following the City of Little Rock will host a reception for the Mayor-elect and Board of Directors. To celebrate the momentous occasion, Unite Little Rock, the organization formed to plan inauguration activities, will host an ecumenical service and party. Each event is free and open to the public.

Little Rock, Arkansas Elects First Black Mayor

“Little Rock has had a Black mayor before, but for the first time in town history, supporters voted one in. His name is Frank Scott Jr.

The 35-year-old banking executive and former highway commissioner defeated the city’s police union favored, Baker Kurrus, in Tuesday’s runoff election for the nonpartisan, open seat.”

Special Edition Terrell Talk: LR Mayor-Elect Frank Scott Jr.

“One of this first items on the agenda is convince the LR Board of Directors to vote in favor on changing the current from of government to a Mayor/City Council form of Government.

That means the city would do away with the City Manager Position - turning it into a Chief Operating Officer with the Mayor serving as the Chief Executive Officer.”
