The Arkansas Ethics Commission did not accept an ethics complaint made against Bryant Alderman Randy Cox, who is seeking the office of mayor.
Arkansas Ethics Commission Director Graham Sloan said the complaint would not be accepted because it was not filed correctly. He explained that Barbara Champagne of Bryant, who filed the two-issue complaint, had not signed the complaint under oath, according to a letter.
The letter reads, "Until staff receives a completed citizen complaint form, the Ethics Commission will not take any action with regard to this matter."
