Saturday Is Election Day – What’s on the Ballot?
Saturday is election day across Louisiana. The Bossier City Mayor's race is not the only thing on the ballot.
Our entire region will choose a new member for the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education or BESE. Tony Davis resigned from his spot on BESE as of January 20th because his job will require more of his time and he will likely be moving to another state.
The candidates for a seat on BESE from District 4 are:
Shelly McFarland, Republican
Michael Melerine, Republican
John Milkovich, Independent
Cody Whitaker, No Party
Cassie Williams, Democrat.
District 4 covers Bienville, Bossier, Caddo, DeSoto, Natchitoches, Red River, Sabine, Vernon, Webster and Winn Parishes.
Bossier City Council District 1:
Bossier City Council District 5:
Vince Maggio, Republican
Marsha McAllister, Republican
