John Lindsey is being challenged by Dan Meaux, the owner of the Crawfish Shak and Crosby-Huffman Chamber of Commerce Board member.

Lindsey when asked said he was his only sign and advertisement, “I only have one sign and you are talking to him. What you see is what you get.I’ve served 10 years on that board and if that isn’t good enough, I need to be gone. I am really glad to have anyone sign-up to serve on the school board. It is great that someone cares.”
