in
Bergeron, Nancy 2014.jpg

The only thing consistent about politics is its inconsistency. Take, for starters, the race to fill the 3rd Judicial District’s Division B judgeship.
Back in January, state Sen. Rick Gallot, D-Ruston, announced he was running for the seat being vacated by retiring Judge Wayne Smith. Gallot spent almost six months campaigning for the job before deciding in mid June that he really didn’t want to be a judge after all.
The timing wasn’t right, he said, plus he had “no burning desire” to run. His withdrawal narrowed the field to local attorneys Lewis Jones, Tyler Storms and Tommy Rogers.

Ruston OKs $75k dip into reserves for housing program

in

Ruston’s Board of Aldermen has agreed to move up to $75,000 in federal Section 8 housing administrative reserve funds into the Housing Assistance Payment account to cover what city Clerk/Treasurer Emmett Gibbs calls a “short term financial shortfall” in the HAP program.
HAP is rental assistance for qualifying Section 8 tenants. All of the money is federal money; there are no direct local taxpayer dollars involved.
“The monthly housing assistance payments are exceeding the monthly HAP revenue,” Gibbs told aldermen.

No meeting set for Mayfield’s replacement appointment

in

No time has been set for Ruston’s Board of Aldermen to name a temporary successor to the late District 2 Alderman Elmore Mayfield. But by law, the board must act no later than Monday.
“Nothing has been decided at this point,” Mayor Dan Hollingsworth said Monday evening, following the board’s regular monthly meeting.
Aldermen must appoint a replacement within 20 days of a member’s death if the term has less than one year remaining. Mayfield’s term would have ended Dec. 31. Mayfield, 70, died June 23 of what Lincoln Parish Coroner Dr. Mike Belue termed “acute cardiac death.”
