MANY, La. (AP) - When Sabine Parish District Attorney Don Burkett receives the oath of office during a swearing in ceremony on Friday, he’ll hold many distinctions as far as his public service to the parish and state.

The Times reports (https://bit.ly/1AuldDY ) Burkett, elected in 1984, is the longest serving district attorney in Louisiana and the elected official with the most tenure in Sabine Parish. His six terms also mean he’s held the DA’s spot longer than any of his predecessors in the history of the 11th Judicial District.

During his 30 years in office, Burkett has seen great improvement in operations of the office. When first elected, there were no computers, fax machines or cellphones to aid in getting the work done.
