Jonesboro attorney Clay Carroll won’t be running for District Attorney from the Second Judicial (Bienville, Claiborne, Jackson Parishes) District.
He told Lincoln Parish News Online (LPNO) this morning that family obligations interceded, as he’s been dealing with protracted illness with one of his sons. Fundraising and travel would take up more time than he was willing to sacrifice, he said.
Said Carroll, “Family’s more important.”
Carroll had done preliminary campaigning for the office, attending public events, and sponsoring a float in the Jackson Parish Christmas Parade last year.
Also said to be interested is Chris Bowman, who ran for that office in 2008.
