Republican Darrell Avery announces that U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) has endorsed him to become the next district court judge for Claiborne, Jackson, and Bienville parishes (Division A).
“Darrell Avery is a conservative who understands that judges interpret law, not write it from the bench. His experience, fair-mindedness, integrity and values make him an ideal choice for district judge, and I am proud to endorse him,” said Dr. Cassidy, Louisiana’s senior U.S. Senator and highest-ranking Republican in the state.
Cassidy’s endorsement is the latest sign that Republicans and conservative voters are lining up behind Avery in his bid for judge. Avery is seeking to fill the seat of retiring Judge Jenifer Clason.
“The people of Claiborne, Jackson and Bienville parishes want a judge who shares their values. I believe in protecting the Constitution and honoring our Christian principles, and I have the ability to see all sides of a case,” said Avery. “Senator Cassidy recognizes that I’m the best candidate for judge, and I thank him for his support.”
Avery has 38 years of well-rounded legal experience as a felony prosecutor, defense attorney and civil litigator. He represents numerous municipalities and boards throughout the Second Judicial District, and he maintains a private practice. He attends Siloam Springs Community Church in Jackson Parish.
