DPPJ Makes Historical Vote Declining to Accept Juror’s Replacement

On December 16, the DeSoto Parish Police Jury called a special meeting, mainly to replace Nicholas Gasper, who is the Juror for District 2. Gasper resigned his position as of December 15, 2020 due to winning the 42nd Judicial Section B Judge’s seat in November.

It has been done this way as far back as anyone can remember, until this meeting.
