Campaign season in St. Bernard Parish is officially underway for the Nov. 4 primary election with 42 seats up for grabs and qualifying closing last Friday. Longtime District Attorney Jack Rowley's name will not appear on the ballot for the first time in overs 30 years with the long-time D.A. retiring. The district attorney race this year will be one to watch. Rowley has been on the job for the last 35 years and has been the 35th Judicial District’s only district attorney since it was created. Three contenders have lined up for the spot, including former Division C judge Perry Nicosia, Glenn E. Diaz and Michael Gorbaty. Of the 33 elections in St. Bernard’s races, there are 11 each for School Board members, justice of the peace and constable. Nineteen candidates in those contests are running unopposed.
