Jason Connor announces run for Erath City Council

I am writing to announce my candidacy for Erath City Council. I have been a resident of Erath since 1986 and I have truly enjoyed the small-town atmosphere. Everyone looks out for each other and most of the people have been in Erath for generations. That family atmosphere is very important to me. About 4 years ago I began to question the electrical bills and attended many council meetings, and that began my interest in town affairs. To most who know me, I am not political by nature, but when I see injustice I feel compelled to speak up.

Candidates of faith may be leaning toward Louisiana’s ballots

A rather holy wave may be building for the 2019 election cycle in the form of pastors and faith-based advocates qualifying as candidates, according to Rev. Gene Mills, the executive director of the Louisiana Family Forum.
While Mills’ forecast applies largely to next year’s House and Senate races, along with a few down-ballot-items, there could be at least one statewide contest as well playing host to contenders from the forum’s flock.
