Ryan Seal, executive director of the Franklinton Area and Washington Economic Development Foundations, will be a candidate for Washington Parish President on the Oct. 12 ballot.

Seal, 52, is a graduate of Bogalusa High School, has a bachelor's degree from Louisiana College and a master's degree from Webster University in St. Louis. He is also a graduate of the Community Development Institute at University of Central Arkansas. While in college, he worked night shifts at hotels. After graduation he worked for a real estate investment company until starting his own businesses. In 2003 he decided to take on his current position leading economic development efforts throughout Washington Parish.

He is married to Tonia Moody Seal, and has two daughters and a son - Presley, 21, Annabella, 18, and Gentry, 16. The family resides in Bogalusa.

"I have always felt it was my calling to work towards improving Washington Parish," Seal said. "Through my work with the Development Foundations for the last 15 years, it has been my mission to bring in as many jobs and opportunities as possible for the people of Washington Parish. As Parish President, I will continue this mission."

"I will work with law enforcement and our healthcare providers to address the drug problem and make Washington Parish safer. I will improve our parish roads and bridges. We must upgrade our telecommunication infrastructure and bring affordable highspeed broadband to the rural part of the parish."

Seal attends First Baptist Church of Bogalusa where he is Vice-Chairman of the Board of Trustees. He is Chairman of the Fund for Bogalusa and a member of the Franklinton Rotary Club and serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Franklinton Chamber of Commerce.
