Dyess (born August 16, 1922), is a semi-retired Baptist minister from
Alexandria, Louisiana, who served as a conservative Democratic member of
the Louisiana State Senate from 1996-2000. From 1964-1988, Dyess was

appointed by the Rapides Parish Police Jury (akin to county commission
in other states). The registrarís position brought Dyess membership
on the Louisiana State Board of Election Supervisors. He was
