By Margaret Koenig

Less than one out of every 10 registered voters in St. Tammany Parish Public Schools District 14 cast ballots in the special election on March 28, 2015, where Dennis "Coach" Cousin (D) defeated John Murchison (I). The voter turnout came to 9.23 percent of the 9,076 registered voters living in the District 14 boundaries.[1]

The seat was up for special election following the death of District 14 incumbent Ray Anthony Alfred (D) on September 17, 2014. He had won re-election unopposed on August 22, 2014. Vacancies on the school board are filled by appointment of the remaining board members until the next general election unless, as was the case for this vacancy, the unexpired term is for more than one year.[2]

Alfred's father, Anthony Alfred, was selected by the board to fill the vacancy in October 2014.[3] He will continue to serve in that role until Cousin takes the oath of office.[1] Cousin will then serve until the next regular election in 2018.

This was just the first of two special elections for the school district in 2015. The District 12 seat will also be up for special election on October 24, 2015, following the death of incumbent James "Ronnie" Panks Sr. (R) on January 14, 2015.[4] The candidate filing deadline for the District 12 election is September 10, 2015.
