Candidates of Color Vie for City Council Seats in Diversifying Springdale

Oct 16, 2020

According to data published by the Northwest Arkansas Council, the region's diverse populations have increased from making up less than five percent of the overall population in 1990 to nearly 30 percent in 2019. In Springdale, more than half the city's population consists of non-white residents. A person of color has yet to be elected to a city government role, but this election cycle three candidates of color are running for seats on the City Council.
