Nearly 80 residents of Natchitoches met at the home of Rodney and Cindy Allen July 21 for a meet-and-greet with Ryan Trundle, a newly registered Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives, District 4. Trundle will oppose incumbent Republican Mike Johnson in the midterm elections on Nov. 6.
Trundle spent several hours meeting, speaking to, and taking questions from a spirited and diverse crowd. Key items in his platform include raising the minimum wage “so that no working family has to live below the poverty line,” making sure people who have paid for years into Medicare and Social Security have those benefits they earned when they retire, and having a government in Washington “that meets the needs of all of its people rather than just giving more tax cuts to the wealthiest one percent.”
Trundle has been a resident of Shreveport for 20 years. He is the father of two children. While working full time as “a time card punch type guy,” he has been active in community organizing focusing on environmental and economic issues impacting working families. During the 2016 Democratic Convention, he served as a delegate for Bernie Sanders.
