Selders jumps into race to challenge Wicker
Larry Selders has qualified to run against incumbent Tara Wicker for the District 10 seat on the Metro Council. Selders, a BREC commissioner, says his campaign began a few weeks ago. "As the City Council representative for District 10, I plan to focus on the Plank [Road] to Scenic [Highway] and Thomas Delpit corridors as centers of investment," Selders says in a news release. "For too long these areas have been neglected while investments happen around them." Selders is Wicker's lone challenger thus far. Today is the last day for candidates to qualify. You can keep up-to-date with all those qualifying for races at the secretary of state's website here. Meanwhile, The Times-Picayune reports Thursday was a slow day at the secretary of state's office, with only four new candidates qualifying for multiparish races on the Nov. 6 ballot. One notable qualifier, however, was a second challenger to Baton Rouge Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy—Richard "RPT" Torregano, an independent from Baton Rouge. He joins Rufus Holt Jr., a Libertarian from Baton Rouge, in challenging Cassidy. Read the full story here for more qualifying news.
