Runoff election set for Tuesday

Ken Foxx and Byron Warren, candidates for Mayor of Gravette, shake hands as they worked together removing campaign signs after Foxx withdrew from the race. Both names will be on the ballot in a run-off election which is scheduled for Tuesday; however votes cast for Foxx will not be counted according to the Benton County Election Commission. Mike von Ree, who finished third in the initial balloting, filed suit in Circuit Court asking the election be voided, charging Foxx does not qualify for the office because of a question of his residence. Judge Xollie Clinger has been assigned the case and a ruling has not been made at press time.
