Special to the Press-Herald
My name is Harper Edwards and I am seeking election as Police Juror for District 8.
I have chosen to live and to raise my family in Minden. My wife Debbie, my children, and I enjoy this peaceful, friendly community. Since graduating from Minden High School in 1990, I have been employed by Fibrebond. During the past 25 years, I have consistently worked my way up to my current position of managing over one hundred fellow employees. I am responsible for my team and to my team.
For the past 32 years, I have been a member of the Minden Presbyterian Church serving as youth director and church elder. I have been blessed with a wonderful church family that has supported me through the trials of life as well as the celebration of life’s miracles.
As my children grow older and approach graduation, my thoughts focus on what is required to maintain our community’s character and to make it functional for the generations who follow. Responsible, experienced people from my generation are needed to step up to fill these roles.
So what does this mean to you? It means that if I am elected as your Police Juror, you will be represented by a man whose track record indicates stability, loyalty, determination, and leadership experience.
If elected, I pledge to be accessible to you and to be your voice on the Webster Parish Police Jury. Please consider my qualifications and vote for me on October 24th. I will be Your choice, Your voice, Your Juryman.
