Businessman Steve Umling is Running For School Board in Caddo Parish
Caddo Parish voters will soon go to the polls to elect Jim Galambos as Mayor of Blanchard and businessman Steve Umling as his challenger, both running as Republicans for CPSB District 1 which covers schools from Rodessa through Mooringsport, Belcher and Blanchard.
Early Life and Education
He grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa – an environment full of cultural diversity – where his life-affirming musical style combined afrocentric grooves with folk harmonies to form his own distinctive sound. His enthusiastic personality and zestful outlook on life come through in his songs and live shows.
He is running for Caddo Parish School Board District 1 to replace incumbent Steve Riall who is not running again. With an experience-rich business background and two terms as president of North Shreveport Lions Club under his belt, Tire Crew, Micah for You and 1 Corinthians being among his accomplishments as two books published through Preaching the Word series are his forte in representing his district well.
Steve Umling owns Tire Crew in Shreveport, Louisiana and is running for Caddo Parish School Board to represent District 1. He believes his business experience will allow him to effectively represent constituents; incumbent Jim Galambos faces off against Umling on Nov. 6. Umling’s ultimate goal is for students who graduate into becoming business-ready community members after leaving school – something North Shreveport Lions Club can assist with.
