|Qualifying slated for judge, district attorney, other officials July 9-11|
Local candidates for judge, district attorney, justice of the peace and constable in Concordia Parish will be qualifying next week -- July 9-11.
Qualifying is also slated for Fifth District Public Service Commissioner, U.S. Senator, and Fifth District U.S. Representative. Additionally, qualifying is set for a special election to fill the remainder of Judge Glenn Gremillion's term on the Third Circuit Court of Appeal, which expires in 2016. Gremillion retired from the judgeship a few weeks ago.
The primary election is set for Saturday, October 4, and the general election, which will include congressional elections, is set for Tuesday, November 4.
The first party primary for U.S. Senator and U.S. Representative will be September 6th and the second party primary election if necessary will be October 4 during the primary.
A three-man race is shaping up for the District Attorney's office in the Seventh Judicial District including Concordia and Catahoula parishes. The post has been held by John Johnson for a quarter century. Johnson has opted not to seek re-election. He'll complete his term at the end of this year.
Two assistant district attorneys and one former assistant district attorney are seeking the post -- Brad Burget, Ronnie McMillin and Andy Magoun.
In the Division A judges race in the Seventh Judicial District, Judge Kathy Johnson will face opposition from John Reeves, who has already announced for the post. In Division B, Judge Leo Boothe is the incumbent.
Voters will also elect justices of the peace and constables.
Presently serving as justices of the peace are Justin Conner, Ferriday, District 1; Windell Millicks, Vidalia, District 2; Gary Nations, Vidalia, District 3; Jerry Stallings, Ferriday, District 4; Charles E. White, Ferriday, District 5A; and Levear Book, Monterey, District 5B.
Currently serving as constables are Rosa Elaine, Ferriday, District 1; Rickey Hollins, Vidalia, District 2; Earl Cotten, Vidalia, District 3; George Sewell, Vidalia, District 4; John H. Cowan, Ferriday, District 5A; and Jerry Lipsey, Monterey, District 5B.
Meanwhile, voters will also select a Public Service Commissioner. Foster Campbell of Shreveport presently serves in the post representing this region. He is seeking re-election.
U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu is also seeking re-election. Treasury Secretary John Kennedy has announced that he will oppose her.
Fifth District Congressman Rodney Alexander will also be seeking re-election this fall.
