Speaking on behalf of SPCU, Sen. Girdler and Ping said the group “absolutely” plans to attend today’s Pulaski Fiscal Court meeting to present its request for financial assistance. Judge-Executive Barty Bullock has already expressed his support of studying a government merger.
“On one hand the city criticizes us for not providing them information about the study, and on the other hand they didn’t even allow us to present them with the information,” Ping said.
Concerning the chances of a study of a united Pulaski County government materializing, Sen. Girdler remained upbeat:
“Hope springs eternal.”
