Jury elects new leadership
As the new Lincoln Parish Police Jury president, Skip Russell said he plans to put together an action plan to attack several issues in the parish.
“It is my opinion that for the last three years, any (Jury issue) that was controversial was swept under the carpet, especially on financial matters,” Russell said. “‘It’s time to grab the bull by the horns.”
Nominated by Juror Bobby Bennett, Russell was elected by the Jury as their new leader by a vote of 7-5 at the monthly meeting on Tuesday evening.
