Although he just made his formal announcement last night, Michael “Duke” Lowrie has been preparing his campaign for the District 8 House seat for some time. That seat is being left vacant by Jane Smith, who was term limited.
Lowrie was born, raised, and educated in Bossier Parish. He and his wife Kara are the owners of Acadiana Mortgage.
Duke is retired from the Bossier City Fire Department where he spent 20 years as a firefighter and paramedic. He has been active in various business and service organizations.
