Lincoln Parish residents will have an opportunity to cast their ballots on Saturday for the General Election.
There will be three items on the ballot. The first, in which all residents will be eligible to vote, is a Constitutional amendment. The amendment would prohibit the levy of new taxes or fees by the state or local governments upon the sale or transfer of real estate.
Newly appointed Grambling State University President Rick Gallot isn’t letting grass grow under his feet when it comes to naming his administrative team.
Gallot, who took office Aug. 1, has named Ellen Smiley interim provost and vice president for academic affairs, effective immediately. The appointment was Gallot’s first rebuilding decision.
Like Gallot, Smiley is a GSU alum. She’s been on the university faculty since 1991, rising through the ranks from an assistant program coordinator with Earl Lester Cole Honors College to honors college dean.
