Marcel announces candidacy for judge
The election will take place on Nov. 4.
A graduate of LSU Law School, Marcel has more than 17 years of practice in state and federal courts across southeast Louisiana. He has served as president of the St. Charles Parish Bar Association and is a member of the Louisiana State Bar Association Alcohol and Drug Abuse Committee.
“There isn’t a more important public office in our community than district court judge,” Marcel said. “The role of a judge is that of a public servant who is charged with applying the law to serve the people and the community as a whole. It is imperative that judges perform their duties in a manner which insures public trust in our legal system.”
Over the past 15 years, Marcel has been an active civic volunteer, having served on the boards of Council for the Prevention of Child Abuse, the Council on Aging Advisory Council, the Center for Family and Youth Services, and the United Way of St. Charles Parish. Additionally, he is a member of the Rotary Club of St. Charles Parish.
Marcel has also been a volunteer instructor for the St. Charles Parish Community Education Program for nearly a decade, providing information about wills and successions to the public.
“I am running for judge because my legal experience combined with my involvement in community organizations make me uniquely qualified to serve,” Marcel said. “As a strong believer in responsible family values, as demonstrated by my devotion to my family, I will put my experience to work to build a safer and better community for all.”
The last day for voters to register to vote in this election is Oct. 6. Early voting is scheduled from Oct. 21-28.
