Judge race tops Saturday's ballots
Some parish voters will have the opportunity to decide on their judicial representation within the 16th Judicial District on Saturday, Oct. 4.
Incumbent state District Judge Lori Landry is facing challenger Lucretia Pecantte-Burton in the Section 1, Division H judge race.
Both candidates are running as Democrats.
Only the western parts of St. Martin Parish are eligible to elect either Landy or Burton because of the Division H physical boundaries. St. Martin Parish Registrar of voters Sue Thibodeaux said the division is composed of only certain precincts throughout the St. Martinville, Parks and Breaux Bridge areas.
The following precincts will be voting in the judge’s race: 1-4, 2-1, 2-3, 2-4, 3-1, 3-1A, 3-1B, 3-5, 3-9, 4-3, 6-3, 6-3A, 6-3B and 7-2A. Portions of the following precincts are also eligible: 1-3, 3-3, 3-4, 3-6, 4-1, 4-1A, 7-1 and 7-3.
Justice of the Peace
In the Parish’s Ward 3, Charlene Champagne is facing Joseph Filer “Coach” Wiltz, both of whom are running as Democrats for the justice of the peace post.
In lower St. Martin Ward 6, precincts 1-2 and 1-5 will choose between Shelia Landry, Democrat, and Lana M. Luke, running as “other.”
