The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury appointed Dr. Charles S. Mackey D.D.S as interim District 5 police juror. 

He will fill the seat vacated by Nicholas Hunter, who was elected mayor of Lake Charles. 

Mackey is very familiar with the job, because he held that seat on the jury for 26 years.

Mackey was first appointed to the jury in 1985 and served until his retirement in 2011. He’s the only juror to serve with three parish administrators.

A special election will be held on Oct. 14, 2017 (primary) and, if necessary, on Nov. 18, 2017 (general), to officially fill the District 5 seat.
