Very little change is likely for the next four years in Ruston, at least on the political front. All four council members and the mayor up for election have filed to retain their seats. Only one race even drew a second candidate. Residents will actually have a choice to make for Position 2, now held by Deb Kristovich. Holland Cohen has decided to venture into the local politics.
Here is a breakdown of the ballot this fall:
Mayor - Bruce Hopkins
Council Position 1: Lyle Hardin
Council Position 2: Holland Cohen vs. Deb Kristovich
Council Position 4: Jane Hunt
Council Position 5: Bruce Judd
