Attorney General candidate drops by

Lincoln Parish District Attorney John Belton has tossed his hat into the ring for Louisiana Attorney General.  Although the election isn’t until the fall of 2023, Belton is making the rounds to gather support.

Belton spoke briefly to the DeSoto Parish  Chamber of Commerce at their monthly meeting last week.  Belton told the group that the current AG will run for Governor next year, opening up the office for Belton and others.

He cited his history in office as basis for the promotion to AG.  And Belton stated that he is running to keep the communities in the state safe.  He describes himself as a product of a small south Louisiana town, a young man from a rural community, who credits his family with instilling faith in God and hard work.

The DeSoto Chamber meets for lunch on the third Tuesday of each month.
