Loar announces run for Ascension Parish president
GONZALES - Ascension Parish Council member Chris Loar announced plans Tuesday to run for parish president.
Loar made the announcement at a Gonzales café Tuesday morning. He's served two terms on the council, and was elected as council chairman three times before stepping down to focus on his parish president run.
Current President Tommy Martinez has announced he doesn't plan to run for a fourth term. Clint Cointment, a surveyor from the Gonzales area, has announced his intentions to run for the top parish seat.
The election is set for Oct. 24, 2015. Qualifying is Sept. 8-10, 2015.
