Todd L. Farrar Announces Candidacy for Pineville City Judge

Posted: Updated:

 

PINEVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) —Tuesday, local attorney Todd L. Farrar announced his candidacy for Pineville City Judge.

The Pineville City Court has jurisdiction over Wards 9, 10 and 11, which encompass all of North
Rapides Parish. Judge Phillip Terrell, who announced his retirement in March, had held this seat.
"I have represented a wide variety of individuals and businesses through the years," Farrar said.

"I am running for judge because I believe I have the right demeanor and judicial temperament to treat everyone that enters the courtroom with professionalism and fairness."
Farrar has been an attorney since 1989 with an active civil and criminal practice.

Prior to opening his own law office, Farrar was an associate with Dale Smith in Ball, La. He also clerked in the 9th Judicial District Court, worked in the Rapides Parish Clerk of Court's office and the Rapides Parish Tax Assessor's Office.

"For the past 24 years, I have spent untold hours in courtrooms handling an array of civil, criminal, family law, domestic, and appeal matters." Farrar said. "I intend to apply my extensive courtroom and legal experience to the position of Pineville City Judge.

When people are involved in legal disputes, they want a judge that is fair, impartial, respectful and knowledgeable. That is exactly the kind of judge I pledge to be."

A lifelong resident of Pineville, Farrar is a 1981 graduate of Pineville High School. He is a graduate of Southern Law School, having received his law degree in 1989, and holds a degree in Political Science from LSU.

Todd is a member of First United Methodist Church of Pineville and is active in the Pineville community.

He has served as a commissioner of the Pineville Housing Authority for 22 years, having recently resigned from that position as he felt it would unethical to continue serving while seeking election of a judicial seat.

He has also served on the Pineville Civil Service Commission, serves as a mentor for Kids Hope USA and is a member of the Lions Club of Pineville. He is married to Teresa Daniel Farrar and has two children.

The primary election is November 4 and, if needed, a runoff will be held December 6.
