School Board Member Decides Not To Run Again

Long-time Red River School Board member, Gene Longino has decided not to seek re-election this fall.  Longino told the Journal he was making the decision now so someone else would have time to prepare to run.

In a prepared statement Longino addressed the people of District 1.  “I would like to thank the people of District One for the opportunity to serve as your School Board Member,” said Longino.  “I am thankful and humble by the support shown me over the years as your board member.”

He added, “After much consideration, I have decided not to seek reelection for the coming term.  I would encourage anyone living in District One who would be interested in serving on the School Board to seek election to the office.”

Qualifying will take place July 20-22 at the Clerk of Court’s Office in the parish Courthouse.

“Again, I am grateful to the people of District One and of Red River Parish for allowing me to serve in this capacity,” concluded Longino.
