The former spokesperson for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office is expected to give new details about his campaign for Sheriff Thursday.

John Fortunato resigned from his long-time post in September and announced that he would challenge interim Sheriff Joe Lopinto in March.

The Jefferson Parish Council called a special election next year to replace former Sheriff Newell Normand who stepped down in August. Normand now has a talk show on WWL Radio.

Lopinto was temporarily appointed Sheriff until the elections are held on March 24th.
