Caddo Parish District Attorney James E. Stewart qualified to appear on the November 3 ballot.
Stewart showed up at Caddo Clerk of Court’s office first thing Wednesday morning to file the paperwork to run for re-election. He says his mantra in the office is to serve God first and then serve the people. In his current term, he’s been working with community partners and groups to make more of a difference in people’s lives as a part of the judicial system.
“I want to give people a second chance. First offenders, non-violent crimes, victimless crimes where we'll keep them out of the courtroom. Keep them out of the system.”
