Interest Builds for House District 12 (Lincoln, Union)

Interest is beginning to build for the upcoming special election for Louisiana House District 12, made up of Union Parish and Part of Lincoln Parish.

Ruston businessman Bill Elmore and local attorney Cary Brown both have told Lincoln Parish News Online that they are contemplating a run for that office.

Neither are strangers to politics.

Brown lost narrowly in November, 2014 to John Belton in the race for District Attorney, and Elmore lost to Ronny Walker for Mayor of Ruston.

Other names rumored, but not confirmed include Jason Bullock, who ran for the seat in 2011, Andy Halbrook, a local stockbroker, and Ayres Bradford, whose wife Connie was a member of the state’s Board of Elementary and Secondary Education.

The district was formerly represented by Rob Shadoin, who recently resigned to take a job with the Louisiana Wildlife & Fisheries Commission. He was first elected in 2011, and was unopposed for re-election in 2015.

According to the Louisiana Secretary of State’s Office, the election has been set for February 23, 2019, with a runoff (if needed) on March 30.

Qualifying is January 9 through January 11, 2019.

    First two mentioned names are excellent choices to represent our area in the House of Representatives. Also either would make a great mayor for the City of Ruston.

      You are definitely right. Doubt Walker will make it another term much less make it through the rest of this one. For many reasons but mostly people are fed up with his spending and destroying families from city hall. I’ll vote for either of these above men now and most definitely should they run for mayor.

    But would either have the guts to jump in to the mayor’s spot and have to clean up the mess perpetrated by Walker’s regime? Who would want to!
