Frank Scott Jr. Elected as 1st Black Mayor of Little Rock, Ark.

A former highway commissioner turned banking executive has won a runoff election for mayor of Little Rock, Arkansas.

Frank Scott Jr., 35, who will take over as the city’s first black elected official some six decades after it had garnered notoriety as the focus of school desegregation, also served as an adviser to former Gov. Mike Beebe.

Scott defeated Baker Kurrus Tuesday in the runoff election for the nonpartisan open seat and will succeed outgoing Mayor Mark Stodola.
