John Cunningham and Louis Johnson both want to be the next commissioner for District 12 in Caddo Parish.
Cunningham says, “I will be the most transparent person you’ve seen. I’m not a politician. I’m a citizen that got upset.”
Johnson says, “This is a very important election. Like to let them know that the parish is about doing those things to increase the quality of life.”
Johnson was appointed by commissioners to the District 12 seat after Ken Epperson stepped down.
“I have a background of public service. It’s what I do. My history is when citizens call I respond and as a commissioner I will do the same.”
The winner of this runoff will fill Epperson’s term through 2020. The former GM plant is what concerns most in this district.
Cunningham says if elected he wants to see all contracts involving the facility, while Johnson says he is going to make sure he communicates with community members about future plans for the plant.
