We ask each candidate running for the District 35 State Senate seat the same five questions:

QUESTION #1: Why are you running for office?

QUESTION #2: What 3 things do you hope to get done during your term should you be elected?

QUESTION #3: As a part of the state legislature, you have to work across the aisle. Do you think you can find compromises with the other party to benefit Northeast Louisiana?

QUESTION #4: What is the biggest issue your parishes are facing that you will be able to tackle?

QUESTION #5: What else would you like to add that we didn’t ask?
