Attorney Ebony Woodruff (D-Harvey) has become the new state rep for District 87. She was the only person who qualified for a proposed special election to replace former State Rep. Girod Jackson. Jackson resigned after he was charged with fraud and failure to file income taxes.
Woodruff was an Assistant Parish Attorney for Jefferson Parish. She says that she will focus on education and crime to improve her district.
She will serve out the remainder of Jackson’s unexpired term.
District 87 includes portions of Harvey and Marrero.
