District 10 - Julian Darby


As a native of the historic “Barksdale Annex,” in Northwest Bossier City, “I am proud to serve our citizens and community.

I am a proud graduate of Bossier High School and attended Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, Louisiana. My educational journey as a Political Science major at Louisiana Tech University and as a prior member of the Bossier Parish School Board inspired my passion for focusing on academic disparities by cultivating empowerment in marginalized communities. Without a doubt, the diverse experiences I had while serving on the School Board afforded me with vision and understanding, vital for quality education in our district.

Professionally, throughout my career, I have been fortunate to break down obstacles and provide a pathway for others. More importantly, I was honored to serve as the first Black American to become President of the Bossier Parish School Board. This role granted me the opportunity to contribute to making education more accessible for underserved communities. As a member of the Police Jury, I will work vigorously to ensure that the voices of our diverse communities are heard and supported.

On the lighter side, I have a Secret Talent—Public Speaking --- I love to listen and speak! It’s just one of the methods I utilize to connect with the residents of District 10. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching sports, and mentoring teen boys on life and social skills.

Beyond my public service, I am a proud member of the Stonewall Missionary Baptist Church, Bossier City, Louisiana. My parents are Mrs. Jessie Darby and the late Pastor D.R. Darby. I am the “middle child” of seven children.

As your Public Servant and representative, I am here for you. I have to tell you that your issues and challenges are my concerns. Also, I would like to listen to my constituents and ensure their problems are heard and resolved. Let’s work together to make District 10 a great place we proudly call home.

It’s All About You! The People! Indeed, “Alone, we can do so little: TOGETHER, we can do so much” ~Helen Keller.

 I suggest we Keep Growing & Making Progress Together!

 Thank you for having confidence in me to represent you.
