District 12 House vote
Saturday’s General Election will mark the runoff between Republicans Jason Bullock and Rob Shadoin, both of Lincoln Parish, for the state House of Representatives District 12 seat currently held by Hollis Downs, R-Ruston.
District 12 encompasses all of Union Parish and the northern half of Lincoln Parish.
Each of the two candidates recently spoke with the Ruston Daily Leader and Farmerville Gazette regarding issues affecting Lincoln and Union parishes.
With the state of Louisiana facing a budget shortfall and resulting cuts, the candidates commented on what should be done to address the situation, whether it be increasing revenue or executing additional cuts to programs and services.
