The race for 26th JDC District Judge is over, and the people have chosen Mike Craig to serve.
Dewey Burchett has served the people well for 20 years, and I regret that it ended in this way. Craig's tactic of portraying Judge Burchett as easy on sex offenders apparently worked. I found it interesting that the people of Webster Parish, where this case was tried, did not buy the hype; they voted for Judge Burchett.
Everyone involved knew that DA Schuyler Marvin was behind Craig's run. I also find it interesting that his home parish of Webster did not support him in this.
There is an old saying that goes something like "All change is not good, and all progress is not forward." We will see if that applies in this case.
Mike Craig won; I do not like the way that he did it.
To borrow the words of Forrest Gump, that is all that I have to say about that.
