And Just Like That – No Free Ride for Foster Campbell @ PSC

Long-time readers of Lincoln Parish News Online will recall our coverage for several years of the Ouachita Parish Police Jury. Since 2007, District E has been represented by Shane Smiley. He served as the body’s President much of that time. That district covers much of North Monroe and the Swartz area.

Yesterday, Smiley filed as a candidate for the Fifth District of Louisiana’s Public Service Commission, challenging incumbent Foster Campbell.

Campbell, 73, is a career politician. He first won election to the PSC in 2003. Prior to that, for 26 years he had been a state senator from the 36th Senate District. Campbell has also run for U. S. Congress, U. S. Senate, and Louisiana Governor.

Smiley is a Republican and Campbell is a Democrat.

Also notable is another name from the OPPJ, Scotty Robinson.

Robinson yesterday filed as a candidate for U. S. Congress, Fifth District.

    Campbell talks about bringing internet to rural north Louisiana but he’s blocked every effort to do so.

      He sure was onboard a few years ago for free internet for welfare folks. I called his office and told his secretary that I have to pay for internet and so should they. It’s not a necessity to life. Anyways alot of those freeloaders have free Obama phones. He, other officials, and those people are leeches on this state and need to be removed.

    Walter, thanks for taking notice. Not only will I make rural broadband a priority, I will make it a reality. I’ve been working with folks who have the background and knowledge to push it in NELA. For 18 years, absolutely nothing has been done. All of a sudden the current commissioner is going to do something. It’s a little too late. I want to serve the people of this district, not just talk about it.
