Backus seeks to retain PJ seat
With the Oct. 22 elections coming up fast, Jody Backus has announced his candidacy to continue serving as Lincoln Parish Police Juror for District 7.
Backus currently serves as Jury Finance Committee chairman. He also serves on the Public Works, Public Property and Buildings and Parks, Recreation and Tourism committees.
He has several major areas of concern for the parish, with the first being the Sparta Aquifer.
Backus said he wants to help educate people on the aquifer and that both Lincoln and Union parishes need to work closely together to improve conserving our domestic water usage as well as surface water solutions.
