Shepherd runs for PJ District 6
Local businessman James “Jim” Shepherd, a Republican, has announced his candidacy for Police Jury District 6.
“The reason I’ve chosen to run for the Policy Jury seat in District 6 is my wanting to serve a parish that has been so good to me and my family,” Shepherd said. “I came to Ruston in 1991 not knowing anyone except for the Hedgepeth family. I had 30 years of experience in the Drycleaning/Laundry business, but wanted a business of my own.”
