Durrett to Seek LPPJ District Three Seat

Richard Durrett, a former administrator of the Lincoln Parish Police Jury, will be filing as a candidate for the District Three slot this week, Lincoln Parish News Online has learned. Qualification for the Tuesday, November 3 election is July 22-24.

District Three encompasses much of the western part of the parish, and lies mostly south of Hwy 146 and west of Grambling. It includes the communities of Simsboro and Vienna.

Here is a map of the jury districts.

Incumbent Juror Marvin Franks was appointed to the seat last February, after a controversy over whether it was legal for him to have sought the office in the first place. The appointment was only good to the end of this year, with an 11/3 special election for the remainder of the 4 year term.

    Anyone who doesn’t support Mr. Durrett doesn’t want a good representative on the police jury. Only 2-3 people in Lincoln parish know the business like he does.

    I’m loving the district lines. Were they drawn up on an ‘Etch a Sketch’ 2.0?

    • BetterBuy Says:

      Lines are drawn based on rules of state and federal requirements. Once you study these you will understand how the lines were developed to meet these requirements.

    I’ll be praying that he can help them regain at least a little of the credibility they just lost with the whole parish administrator thing.

    Why didn’t Durrett run in the first election? Franks won in both elections in 2019 against two other well respected pillars of the community. Every election costs the tax payers money. If no one else qualifies against Franks then there is no election. Therefore no more money spent on an issue that was decided last year. Yes there was a snafu that was more than likely federal government red tape than a scam by Franks. But why spend the money? What has Franks done or not done to be voted out? If Durrett wants a chance he can run in 2023.

      You appear to be histrionic.

      My bet is that it has nothing to do with the circumstances of the election and every bit to do with the disgust many feel over the events of the past month.

        Go Durrett . Out Franks. Character matters and the fiasco with Calloway will haunt the jury for awhile. Franks is gone.

    • BuddyBob Says:

      Hate to tell you but Mr. Durrett and any other qualified elector in the district can qualify to run for this seat. The incumbent had to be appointed by the police jury because, although he was elected in a close 3-way race, he could not take the office because of his commitment with the military, so the seat was declared vacant by the secretary of state. That’s the only reason this seat is open to reelection.

    Walts old school boyfriend just showed up to the party. He was old 30 years ago. Glad you boys up north get to hear your jurors deal with their new leader when he’s elected

    • Walts jealous boyfriend Says:

      Good luck mr Hunt, now you get to wrestle with walts bf durrett and also Wyatt. Maybe Wyatt will share her bottle of wine bc you’re gonna need it if walts boy durrett gets elected…

        Such high hopes for this new jury. Then they did what they did with this new appointment. Hope they’re getting a lesson about how people don’t like to see that kind of thing happen. I’m including the new guy they appointed in that statement. I’m sure they’re hoping people forget and they probably will. But it will be awhile and maybe not before the next election.

        • Heisenberg Says:

          Durrett hates those young jurors just like Walt does. Actually, Durrett hates all those jurors…..just ask durrett what he thinks about Wyatt, but Walt won’t…..he and durrett too scared to.
          Prove us wrong Walt

    All jurors under the thumb of the elite of the parish

    Durrett is a fair man, a good man, and not a hater. He has the experience, know how and integrity it takes to serve. He would expect others on that board to also serve with integrity.

  9. Anonymous Says:

    Integrity: the quality or state of being of sound moral principle, uprightness, honesty and sincerity. Integrity not found in the majority of most elected officials in Lincoln Parish.

      I wonder if the pj even read this blog to know what people are thinking of them right now and if they do, do they care?

      • Heisenberg Says:

        Durrett is gonna care what the 7 people on this platform say bc he thinks walt is a king maker.

        Richard, stay retired and don’t let Walt talk you into this swamp
