Caddo Commissioner Steven Jackson will announce his candidacy for the Louisiana Legislature for House District-2. The campaign announcement will take place on August 3, 2023 at 5:30 at the Lynx (pronounced: links) Restore Bar (3940 Greenwood Rd).

  • ​Secured $1million dollars to help support building Caddo Common Urban Park.

  • ​Enacting legislation to place a moratorium on payday lending companies.

"I am deeply encouraged by grassroots support we receive as we talk to and engage with constituents across the district. They value the work ethic and experience that I bring to the table and they value the work that we have put in as a Caddo Parish Commissioner. We have data that show strong support for our campaign. We also have had a very impressive fundraising effort to build on resources we already had on hand. I am excited and looking forward to running a strong race. I solicit all prayers and support as we continue to keep the faith."

This kickoff event will be a great opportunity to network, shake hands, and learn about the progress of our campaign. I am also proud this event will also be supporting Lynx Restore Bar, a homegrown and woman owned business within the district.
