And then there was one … for the Dixie Inn Mayor’s race.

By Tina Montgomery

Mayor Donna Hoffoss will be elected automatically as Mayor of Dixie Inn since Kay Hallmark-Stratton withdrew her name from the race.

Hoffoss has served on the Village of Dixie Inn council as alderwoman off and on for several years and as Mayor Pro Tem in 1998. She was appointed mayor from May 2022 to present.

As Mayor, Hoffoss says she wants to make the Village of Dixie Inn more accessible to people and bring in more business. 

“I really want us [the council] to promote the bayou area, perhaps working with the Webster Parish Convention and Visitors Bureau,” she said.

In addition to moving forward with projects funded during the previous Mayor’s term, Hoffoss says she wants to work with Police Chief James Edwards to reinstate the Reserve Officer program. 

“In today’s climate with the police, it’s really good if someone is with the officers on patrol,” she said.

Mayor Donna Hoffoss says she’s a woman of few words, but she is looking forward to working with the council aldermen and continuing to serve the residents of Dixie Inn.
