Daily World's Friday (6/28/13) front page story about Parish Council. Once again the stupidity and incompetence of these folks are a cont'd embarrassment rejecting the Roadside Contract for roadside-spraying. Do these folks do any research, investigation on budget items before attending public meetings to know what they are voting on. Good thing we have at least one elected person, Parish Council President Bill Fontenot that is not only educated on the facts, but can run the largest gov't agency we as taxpayers pay for to run an effective body when these idiots don't obstruct or be incompetent in their responsibilities. Now, we have no roadside spraying (increase chances of accidents and injury/death to adults/children) for the year. Will also cost taxpayers more in cutting. Also, in public meetings we have council members insulting, accusing, demeaning citizens/employees and now threatening an employee to the point of a "fist fight", "Really"? Many need to be removed from their elected positions for their cont'd incompetence and sure meanness towards citizens/employees. The big 3 that apparently screw everything up and waste enormous time and our money are Wayne "I want to be Council President), Pam Gautreau (camera anywhere) and Tim (have no clue, but let me talk, talk, talk) Lejeune. Hope Pres. Bill Fontenot continues to stand his ground, dismiss these idiots and get the parish back in order. Cleaning up the mess that many of the current members for previous yrs. were on the council. Based on their obstructionism and "incompetence", IMO they are committing "MALFEASANCE" and should be "RECALLLED, RECALLED, RECALLED". The few that are trying to work with Bill Fontenot will be rewarded by citizens voting them back on and the majority will be REMOVED ! Let's at least get rid of obstructionists: Wayne Ardoin, Pam Gautreau, Tim Lejeune and Mr. "Fist-a-cuffs" Alvin Stelly. Wow, what a bunch of useless idiots we have running this parish .

No, you need to be educated on your facts sir. Bill Fontenot is the Parish President of the parish not the Parish Council President. Fact: A Parish Council President does not exist, only a Chairman of the Council who is Leon Robinson. Also, there are 13 Council Members therefore it takes majority of the vote so 3 or 4 people cannot obstruct government alone. If you would maybe attend a Council Meeting instead of relying on the newspaper, you would see what is happening.

Yes, misspoke Mr. Bill Fontenot is the elected Parish President. Mr. Leon Robinson is the current Chairman of the Council for 1 rotating year.. Other than correctly stating the council has 13 elected members, that is about all you have correct. Many of the 13 are quite, never speak and then the few loud mouth, never stop talking who steers the agenda and essentially controls the timid on the board for their outlandish waste of tax monies, from it being spraying grass, poor road repair, to not paying attention to the books (ie: airport hanger, etc.). They have wasted monies hiring all these expensive lawyers to accuse and fight Mr. Fontenot on multiple frivolous lawsuits, all of which they have lost. The only informed, educated, and esp experienced in roads and right of ways is Mr. Fontenot. But, many think they know so much, it only reveals their total lack of intelligence on the matter. As for just 3-4 people can slow down, obstruct and create havoc , as they have done since Mr. Fontenot took office (esp. Wayne Ardoin, Pam Gautreau, Tim Lejeune). Let the only man that knows what he is doing get the parish back on track and vote out the trouble makers, stirrers of the pot of discontent or RECALL, RECALL, RECALL them for their incompetence bordering on malfeasance !
