Gallot Withdraws from Judge’s Race

Gallot Not Running for Third Judicial District Judge

KTVE-TV10 – State Senator Rick Gallot announced today that he will not be a candidate for the Third Judicial District judgeship.

“Since the end of the 2014 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature, I have had the opportunity to enjoy some much needed quiet time and quality time with my wife and sons. After considerable prayer and contemplation, I have decided not to seek the office of Judge for the Third Judicial District Court,” Gallot stated.

Gallot said that in each of the six elections he has previously run, there has been a certain peace in his spirit that he should run. He says this is not the case in this judicial election. This is a time when he feels the need to spend more time with his family, his clients and the constituents of the senatorial district that he represents.

“I am very grateful to everyone who offered to support me in this election. There are very good lawyers who practice in the Third Judicial District and I am confident that we will elect one who will serve us well. I am looking forward to spending time with my family this summer and continuing to work hard for the citizens of Senate District 29,” Gallot added.

    Could lack of ethics be a problem?

    More likely the movers and shakers in Ruston have quietly told Rick he isn’t welcome on the bench because they prefer to keep the seat in friendly hands and they prefer someone a little less ethically challenged!
