MONROE, La. – Ouachita Parish Police Juror Scotty Robinson responded to U.S. Representative Ralph Abraham announcing he is not seeking re-election in Congress this year. Robinson said he is looking forward to running for Abraham’s seat.

“I really enjoy the job and I’m just looking forward to serving in a different capacity here in the future,” Robinson said.

Robinson initially announced he is running for Congress on Facebook in October. He said in a video on Facebook, “I know that I can represent the people of the 5th Congressional district with the honesty and integrity they deserve. That’s why I’m excited to tell you that I plan on running for Congress in 2020.”

Robinson is a native of West Monroe and said he just started his third term on the Ouachita Parish Police Jury. He said he is looking forward to serving his community on a federal level.
