Since the city took over 2 years ago, what progress has the city made from the former organization? My buddy coached there this year and he said this league is now ran down and that after 12yrs old there is no options for kids...

How do you judge progress by the amount of time the director is not on the job?

I heard that Jerry is doing a fantastic job. He has a plan to put in place and his secretary really is helping him adjust to his job.

Well he had two tournaments that brought alot of revenue to the city, he has football going right now and I hear he is going to really push basketball. The fields are beautiful especially Sellers. I hear he is working on them everyday. I hear the council have evalutated him and have given him a A plus. He is really a great communicator with the community. I see great things for the future in the park.

Those tournaments are what landed him on probation, select.... Twice! Those tournaments had ZERO to do with his job description. Those were LA legends tournaments. Check his track record. It's only going to get worse. QSA has already ran the Abb league into the dirt and it's only going to get worse. Think it was a poor hire by the city but everyone is entitled to their opinion. Every one of my kids will be in the QSA leagues. Sad to say because I grew up in the abbeville leagues that were all so darn successful. Now it's horrible. Absolutely horrible. But to each his own. And I may be completely wrong about this but I highly highly doubt that I am.

I don't think so!! He was hired and I heard the council love him. He is the man to bring in tournaments, give lessons and has contacts all over the country. He is very underpaid at the salary he is getting. QSA will foiled along with the guy that the city didn't want. Did you see how bad the facilty is in Erath. They need to hire Jerry. He would put them in the right direction!!!

To each his or her own. I'll respect your opinion. We just don't come close to seeing eye to eye about this. And I have swung by QSA. Give it a year and come back and talk to me. They are making more improvements to those parks right now than abbeville will do during Jerry's whole time here. And that's 100% a fact.

I hear that Councilman Brousard is very supportive. Loves what he does and really I think it is amazing the things that he has done for our park. We have never in my years seen the park so beautiful and active.

Why are we even comparing Abbeville to Erath? It is what it is. Do we want to compare New Iberia and Lafayette also? Maybe Los Angeles and New York.
The main point is we are rid of the biggest cheat that Erath now has to contend with. Every city official I ever asked said he is an a55hole and they were glad to get rid of him. Hope he does a good job for Erath, but they don't have as much money to steal as Abbeville! But Granger has some extra he can work on.

Stealing you need to find out where to money for entry fees and gate went this summer. What organization benefited from this. Check it out and put it on topix who made the money and how much was charged for entry fees and gate and see how much money the Recreation department made on concessions.

That sounds like a great idea. I can tell you this much. The park in abbeville has never been as crowded with people and cars as it has this past summer. Something is going right over there!

I'll tell you what organization benefited from those tournaments... Jerry Martinez's pocket. The second his mouth starts to move, it's a lie. Period.

Sellers field is beautiful but , it is taken care of by VC parents and coaches. Theriot field
Is also in good shape due to AHS coaches and parents. These fields were in good shape
Before Jerry came to work and will still be in good shape long after he is gone.

Did VC build Sellers field? If so where did they get the money. Also wasn't Theriot resently renovated where who got the grant to renovate the field? Was it Jerry or his Predecessor.

I did not say any field was built by either school,but the way they look is because of parents,coaches who do the best they can with limited funds. Also check the minor league fields that were done by parents of kids so that they have a nice place to play without driving out of town.

For who to play? The new recreation director to host tournaments for his benefit or to give lesson on the fields for his benefit. Come on for years the money made off of these fields went back into the park. I bet you that if the city tell their director that all proceeds from the tournaments he puts on at the tax payer own park goes into the recreation fund that he will not host many next year. Jerry is for Jerry.

Agreed 100%... Jerry is a crook working for himself on city time on city property. The city council won't do anything about it though.... If they had the guts they would have canned him when they had a chance! Now the LA Legends home site will be Abbeville... That's all he is after, a place to host his summer league squad. He's is never at work anyway. I've seen that city issued truck in about every other city around here other than parked at AA Comeaux Park... Jerry Martinez is a crook.
