Jerome Darby can easily identify his foundation of service. Since he was young, his father instilled in him the need to give back to his community and to those less fortunate. His giving began through volunteer and mentoring work in his church.
That feeling of need to give back led him to be the senior member of the Bossier Parish Police Jury with nine terms under his belt. He believes the duty of being a public official means not only serving his District 10 constituents but his fellow police jurors and the people of the parish whenever he can. For Darby, it’s all about the people.
Contact is necessary for the progressive group to keep up with the rapid growth and the needs of the parish. Darby believes the spirit of a servant, not a politician, runs deeply in each jury member.
Darby is a forensic social worker who works with juveniles facing court action in Caddo Parish. His goal is to make a difference in their lives by helping them find alternatives to the dark places in which they find themselves.
