  schroder edwards  Saturday, November 18 is election day for those few dedicated souls who will bother to go to the polls and vote.
    The only statewide race on the ballot is the special election for state treasurer.  There will be a smattering of local elections, such as for mayor of New Orleans and the Caddo Commission.
    The special election for state treasurer is to replace John Kennedy, who was elected to the U.S. Senate.

   The candidates are Republican John Schroder and Democrat Derrick Edwards.
    Schroder, who is white, lives in Covington.  He is a veteran, small businessman, real estate agent, a developer, and a former state legislator.  He is very serious about wanting this position.
    He has spent nearly one million dollars as of October 29 – $910,105 to be exact.  It is likely that his total expenditures will exceed one million dollars when all is said and done.
