Common Core testing looms over St. Tammany's District 14 special election Mar 27, 2015

By Margaret Koenig

The successor to District 14 board member Ray Anthony Alfred (1954-2014) will be determined March 28, 2015.

The first of this year's two special elections for the St. Tammany Parish School Board in Louisiana is March 28, 2015. Either Dennis "Coach" Cousin (D) or John Murchison (I) will join the largely Republican school board as the District 14 representative. The winner will also become part of the board's struggle with the ramifications of Gov. Bobby Jindal's (R) executive order allowing parents to opt out of the state's spring standardized tests.

After being automatically re-elected due to a lack of challengers in the 2014 general election, six-term District 14 incumbent Ray Anthony Alfred (D) died on September 17, 2014, at the age of 60.[1] According to Article VI, Section 13 of the Louisiana Constitution and state law, all vacancies on the board are filled by appointment by the St. Tammany Parish School Board for the remainder of the unexpired term of the vacated seat or, if the unexpired term is longer than one year, until a special election can be held.

Alfred's father, Anthony Alfred, was selected by the board to fill the vacancy in October 2014.[2] He will serve until the successor is determined in this election and has taken the prescribed oath of office.[3] Saturday's winner will serve until the next regular school board election in 2018.

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.
