Voices of experience win votes
Ruston’s Dan Hollingsworth and Dubach’s Margaret Rogers both ran unopposed, leaving the municipalities up for grabs in Grambling, Choudrant and Simsboro.
In Simsboro, the election was extremely close, with Willie Hendricks beating out Sybil Smalling Foster by only four votes.
Hendricks said that during his campaign one of his main statements was that he needed one more vote, which is almost fitting considering his slim win margin.
He will fill the seat currently occupied by Woodie Pritchett, who did not seek re-election.
