The Shreveport City Council races shape up as follows:
District A: Runoff between Rose McCulloch & C. O. Simpkins to replace Calvin Lester.
District B: Runoff between Jeff Everson & Sheva Sims for the seat now held by Monty Walford. In the last election, Walford edged out Sheva Sims by just 6 votes
District C: Oliver Jenkins won with 84% of the vote over Jake Toloso
District D: In the seat that Bryan Wooley vacated in order to run for mayor, Phillip Templeton & Michael Corbin will be in a runoff
District G: Sam Jenkins will replace Joyce Bowman.
Bossier School Board
Allison Brigham, Tammy Smith, Jack Raley and Eddy Ray Presley will be returning to the Bossier Parish School Board. The closest race was District 9, where Presley defeated Ed Jackson by only 4 votes.
In District 11 Barbara Rudd defeated incumbent Lindell Webb with 55% of the vote to Webb’s 45%. Rudd was the only candidate, to my knowledge, who said she favored the roll-forward in the tax millage rate, which was nixed by the board last month.
Sandra Darby will replace her brother (Julian I think, I get them mixed up!) in District 10.
District 12 – Wow! Kay Padgett Byrd got exactly 50% of the vote for this seat, with 556 votes. Martin Bourgeois had 338 votes and Mike Tucker 218 votes. 338 + 218 votes = 556 votes. One more vote for Byrd and she would have been elected outright.
In the only other Bossier Parish race, Kenneth Stiles won election as Plain Dealing Alderman.
Caddo Parish School Board
District 2: Runoff Jasmine Green & Lyndon B. Johnson
District 3: Willie Burton elected with 72%
District 5: Curtis Hooks elected with 52% out of a field of three candidates.
