|Sheriff's association officials endorse Clark|
Louisiana Sheriff's Association officials publicly announced their support Wednesday for Judge Marcus Clark in his bid for a Louisiana Supreme Court seat.
Clark, a 4th Judicial District Court jurist, will face fellow Republican Jimmy Faircloth in the Oct. 17 special election to fill Justice Chet Traylor's seat.
Traylor represented District 4 of the Supreme Court from 1996 until earlier this year when he resigned to pursue a career in private practice.
Faircloth is an attorney from Pineville who stepped down as Gov. Bobby Jindal's executive counsel to run for Supreme Court.
Allen Parish Sheriff Hal Turner, executive director of the Louisiana Sheriff's Association, and West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff Mike Cazes announced the association's support of Clark Wednesday at OIB Plaza in Monroe. Cazes is chairman of LSA's political action committee.
"When I was asked about this endorsement, I said I would be honored to endorse Judge Clark," Cazes said. "The Louisiana Sheriff's Deputy and Political Action Committee voted on Aug. 3 at our annual conference to endorse Judge Marcus Clark as the next Supreme Court Justice for District 4."
"Judge Clark has been an excellent judge and he is a true friend to all law enforcement," Cazes said. "We vigorously support his candidacy. An overwhelming majority of the sheriff's in District 4 has voted to endorse Judge Clark."
Madison Parish Sheriff Larry Cox, LSA's past president, presented Clark's campaign with a $5,000 donation following the announcement.
"I've known Marcus for almost 25 years now and I am truly honored to give him this $5,000, the maximum allowed by law," Cox said.
Clark said he was honored to have the support of the LSA officials.
"This endorsement means a milestone for my campaign," Clark said. "We've been running hard and we have a lot of support, but if you look back in history, the sheriffs' endorsement on any campaign has made a major impact on the outcome of that campaign."
"The sheriff's association says I have been a good friend to law enforcement," Clark said. "Well, law enforcement has been a good friend to all of us and our families. Law enforcement protects us day in and day out. We owe a lot to them."
