Special Legislative Election Called To Replace Rep. Jared Brossett
House Speaker Chuck Kleckley is calling a special election in November to fill a vacant state House seat representing part of New Orleans.
Rep. Jared Brossett, a Democrat from New Orleans, resigned from the House of Representatives this week to take an elected seat on the New Orleans City Council.
Kleckley set the special election to fill the House District 97 seat to coincide with the Nov. 4 congressional elections being held around Louisiana. A runoff, if needed, will be held Dec. 6.
Qualifying for candidates is set for Aug. 20 through Aug. 22.
