State Representative Mack "Bodi" White announced today he's seeking a state senate seat in this year's upcoming election.
"I wanted to announce my candidacy for the new 6th state district that was created and approved last week in the state of Louisiana" said white.
He says he's helped lower taxes, created jobs, and helped to streamline our state's infrastructure during his tenure in the state house.
As a State Senator, he's looking to keep his reputation as a money saver in state government.
White told NBC 33 this at his announcement ceremony.
"You can expect a lot of the same, that I'll be a conservative legislator, that I'll try to keep our government in check and not be over bearing, won't be voting for any new taxes."
