Red River Parish Assessor Becky Craig has announced that she will not seek re-election this fall.
Craig was hired as a part-time employee in 1982. She was sworn in as Deputy Assessor in 1984 and has served as Assessor since 1997.
“Words can never express my sincere appreciation for the privilege to serve as Red River Assessor. The trust and confidence you placed in me the past 22 years has been one of the greatest honors of my life. I will forever cherish the people of our great parish and all the dear friends I have made over the course of the years.
“I would also like to extend my utmost gratitude to my staff for all their hard work and dedication through the years. They are truly the foundation of the office. We have a special relationship that is comparable to none. After 36 years, leaving them and the rest of the employees in the courthouse will be very difficult to say the least!”
Craig said she is excited about spending more time with her family and with her first grandchild, which is due in August of this year.
Craig’s term will officially end December 31, 2020.
