Third Judicial District felony prosecutor Cary Brown has become the first officially announced candidate for the district attorney’s job being vacated by retiring DA Bob Levy.
Brown formally announced his candidacy Monday night before a crowd of supporters gathered at Ruston’s Historic Fire Station. The 3rd Judicial District is comprised of Lincoln and Union parishes.
“As a native of Ruston with family also in Union Parish, I can tell you that no one cares more about the citizens of this jurisdiction and their protection than I do,” Brown said.

For Chris Turner, working at Ruston’s Super 1 Foods was supposed to have been just a college job.
“I was buggy boy, bathroom cleaner, gofer, everything,” Turner said.
Now, 20 years later, he’s the store director, with a second-floor office that has a large plate-glass window offering a bird’s-eye view of almost all of the nearly 55,000-square-foot market.
“I started working for the company and it was a good company to work for,” Turner said. “I can’t sit at a desk. I’m a people person.”

Manny Diaz sounded like a man on a mission as he was officially introduced him as Louisiana Tech’s new defensive coordinator Monday in a press conference in the Charles Wyly Athletic Center.
