Judge Dewey Burchett has served the people of Bossier and Webster Parishes from the Bench for the last twenty years. He received a B. S. degree from LSU in Baton Rouge, after which he was a pilot and instructor pilot in the USAF from 1962 to 1967. Following his military service he graduated from LSU Law School.
Judge Burchett served as City Attorney for Bossier City and as Secretary/Attorney for the Bossier Levee Board. He currently teaches seminars on legal subjects to judges, lawyers and law enforcement officers.
Judge Burchett has been married for 41 years to his wife Pat. The Burchetts have two sons and a granddaughter.
In the early 1980’s he traveled to Washington, DC to lobby Congress for funding for the locks and dams on Red River. Although he could have garnered some hefty legal fees for this service, he didn’t charge a dime. Judge Burchett understands public service for what it should be. He is an upstanding individual, an extremely capable Judge, and is deserving of our support to continue in that capacity.
Re-elect Judge Burchett.
