Fleming, Sexton issue endorsements

Congressman John Fleming and Sheriff Gary Sexton have made their endorsements for Saturday's State Representative election

Dear Editor:

To the voters of District 10:

This coming Saturday is a very important election day for our District. On that day we'll go to the polls to elect our next State Representative.

The purpose of this letter is to state my personal support of candidate Gene Reynolds, #55; and to encourage you to consider voting for Gene when you go to the polls.

I support Gene Reynolds because of his integrity, his ethics, his Christian values, and his ability to work with others to get things done. Gene has focused on the local issues that directly affect us; those issues that can be dealt with at the State level. He truly has a deep understanding of our needs right here and is the only candidate who has specific and original ideas and plans to address them.

Gene's top priority is in jobs and our local and state economy; and he is the candidate with a well-defined plan to improve our job situation right here in District 10.

His longtime support of law enforcement assures me that Gene will support and encourage the passing of legislation that protects our citizens from criminals and criminal activity. He and I share the same priorities—to look out for our kids and our future.

Over the past three decades in his work as a teacher to administration of curriculums, million-dollar budgets, and hundreds of personnel, students, and parents, Gene has more than proven his abilities to lead, manage, and relate to people of all social, professional, ethnic, and party backgrounds. More importantly, he's proven that he'll never sacrifice his integrity for personal gain. That type of character is very hard to come by these days.

Gene Reynolds will not only represent all of us with honesty, fairness, and professionalism; but he will represent us with our best interests at heart—not the interests of politicians and parties.

Please join me in trusting Gene Reynolds with our representation.

Webster Parish Sheriff

Congressman John Fleming: DePingre will be a Strong Advocate for Local Businesses

Dear Editor:

I am writing you today to ask for your support for our friend and neighbor, Jerri Ray dePingre'. Jerri's running for State Representative, District 10.

As a result of the October elections, Jerri has found herself in a battle against a Democrat to claim an open seat for the Louisiana House of Representatives that has traditionally been held by a Democrat.

As a conservative Republican, Jerri has a great shot at claiming this seat.

Not only have I endorsed her candidacy, but so has Governor Bobby Jindal and the political arms of the Louisiana Association for Business and Industry (LABI) and the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association (LOGA).

Jerri will be a strong legislator for Webster Parish and will offer strong leadership as she works with Governor Jindal in Baton Rouge for smaller government and less tax burden.

Congressman John Fleming
