Too bad they didn't take pictures of the fire hydrant that the Mayor had the town workers install on his property so he could water his crops...
28 years of lies & stealing will finally catch up with the mayor come Feb. 9th..

Citizens of Independence, PLEASE VOTE for one of the other persons running for the office of mayor..

We need CHANGE !! Our streets are horrible, our town is falling apart and we are being passed up for just about any & all types of businesses..

Look at Hammond to the south & Amite to the north..There is progress taking place in those communities so why not here ??....Independence needs a LEADER not a loafer...

Maybe because Independence do not put on many fund raisers to better the community like Hammond & Amite does.

As far as the lies & stealing, if it is not him then it will be someone else.

You know if this was the average man and we bought drugs on the street much less sold them in the jail they would lock us under the jail. Just so happens that the Independence Mayor's nephew gets busted and gets out of it scott free or poor baby is on probation for 5 years. Where is the justice system in Tangipahoa Parish ? I can tell you one thing our town needs a change some kind of bad and I hope the people in Independecnce will see that on Saturday!!!

THe streets,the buildings,the trash, the thugs,the illeagal immagrants bussed in to work the farms,THE place looks like a poor town in mexico! I feel sorry for the good people that live there.(thetown can still be made to be very welcoming to folks again but who would want to invest in an area that looks hopless....THANKS PHILLUP>>>>FOR NOTHING!!!!!MAYBE LIUZZA WILL GIVE YOU A JOB ON HIS FARM TOO COMPRENDE????

As a lifelong resident of Independence, it saddens me to see things of this nature posted about the place in which I reside. It also doesn't surprise me to see that only one of the five comments posted are actually residents of the town.
Mayor Domiano has done wonderful things for this town and its people. I really do not believe that the residents of Independence are going to allow any of you to influence the way they vote on Saturday. My only question is what have you done to better the town other than bash the town mayor and its alderman.
Do you really think that this is the work God has put you here to do?

I think that Domiano's know that they think they are better than everyone else. Maybe they don't know what a crook the "king" of the town is.

Please the topic of this is that his nephew got arrested and got out of it. What he has done for our town you must not have driver liscense and rode across our streets or see how him or his family treats people with no respect. I can tell one thing if I had the chance I would run for street comissioner at 63,000.00 i would fill pot holes and place barrels all across this town. God did put me on this earth to tell the truth and that is what I am doing!!!!

NO MAM THEY ARE THEIRS ALL THEIRS THEY PAID FOR THAT. AND THE REASON WHY THE SON WAS IN TROUBLE FOR THAT WAS BC THE MAN WAS TAKING PICTURES [ ON THEIR PROPERTY ] WHICH IS VERY ILLEGAL AND SAID SOME BAD WORDS BUT SERIOUSLY WITH ALL THE ROUGH CAMPAIGNING AND RUDE TALKIN EVERYONE IS SAYING ABOUT THE MAYOR, DONT YOU THINK THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE SOME BAD THINGS TO SAY BACK. SO BACK OFF. THIS ELECTION HAS GOTTEN WAY OUT OF HAND AND PHILLIP DOMIANO IS A WONDERFUL AMAZING MAYOR, AND HAS DONE A LOT FOR THE TOWN. IF YOU DONT BELEIVE IT THEN GET OVER IT AND GO ON WITH YOUR LIFE. STOP TALKING SO MUCH BS!

What have I done for the town ??? Well I have paid my taxes every year, I have supported the schools & businesses in town too..

I also get my vehicles tires balance & realigned all the time due to the decay of our streets..

I also supported a local alarm system company to install a device on my property because I don't feel safe in this town anymore..Where are our $7 a hour policemen at ??

I remember when this town had night-life, a movie theater, a coffee company (the train used to stop here), a Mill, a community swimming pool and a whole lot of pride in the community..Now look at us..

Independence is slipping backwards - not forwards...
