Paul Elliott, of Maumelle has been chosen by his fellow members of the Pulaski County Quorum Court to represent them this summer at the Association of Arkansas Counties Quorum Courts Convention in Hot Springs on Aug. 21 through Aug. 23.
The District 14 Justice of the Peace represents Maumelle, parts of western North Little Rock and the south half of the Marche community on the quorum court. He is currently serving in his second term on the court.
Elliott is one of the most active JP’s who marries a couple almost every day. He said he often gets a call to come to the courthouse to perform the wedding ceremony because most other JP’s don’t want to marry people.
He said couples often want to get married at the Old Mill in North Little Rock or at some other historic site.
He was chosen for this new leadership position by the entire Quorum court to represent them at the annual meeting. One delegate from each of the 74 counties in Arkansas is scheduled to attend.
Primarily the JP’s will be briefed on new laws enacted during the current legislative session that impact them in their role.
Elliott is a retired North Little Rock, Missouri Pacific and Union Pacific Railroad law enforcement officer. He and his wife Barbara live in Maumelle.
