Congress, Judgeships Take Stage

It’s only one month until voters go to the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 4 to choose a new Congress and a host of local officials.

In Central, political signs are everywhere along busy roads and streets, as candidates vie for exposure and legitimacy.  With Congressman Bill Cassidy running for the U.S. Senate, a host of Congressional candidates have targeted Central as an essential part of their game plan for victory.

In addition, all sitting district, juvenile, and family court judges are up for reelection, and four have opposition.  District Judge Kay Bates is retiring, and five candidates are campaigning for that seat.  Last but not

least, three of the seven members of the Central Community School Board have opposition.  However, these races have not yet generated much controversy .

The Central City News is devoting most of this edition to the upcoming election.  In addition, a special edition will be published on Thursday, Oct. 30.
