School Board Member Ronnie Broughton held a reception July 21, 2011 at "Orleans on Main" in Minden,
announcing his bid for State Representative.
A special appearance was made by Treasurer Sect. John Kennedy who enthusiasticly endorsed Broughton
for his bid to replace Jean Doerge as State Representative. Doerge can not seek re-election due to term limits.
Kennedy said Broughton is the right man for the job. He will make the tough decisions necessary. Kennedy said he has known Broughton for years and know his character to be honest and hard working.
Broughton is a conservative Republican, believing in strong family values.
