I sure hope someone from the Marshal's family steps up to run for his position. He came from a very large family and his family would be very proud to continue to serve the Kaplan community. His father served Kaplan for 30 years as City Marshal and Mr. Percy served for just over 15 years. I hear his grandfather was Kaplan's first Constable. There were no Marshals then, the town was too small. They were good people to the community and good to all the people.

I think the current Marshal is doing a great job. I will vote for her. She has the experience and learned under the previous Marshal. She is qualified and went to the Police Academy. What experience do the others have? Any worked as a Marshal or Policeman before. Ruby, you got my vote in Nov. Hope you win.

Those people that did not agree with my comments, that is ok, it is a free country. But you must have never dealt with the Marshal's office. They try to always go out of their way to accomodate and be nice. Unless you force their hand. Marshal Ruby is doing a great job, so I hope she wins. And I am not sure again if any of the other candidates have a clue what work is really done there. Good Luck Ms Ruby.

I am voting for LaPoint! Ruby is too bossy with the public and thinks she is a cop. She is not a cop.

I don't think there is one qualified person running. I agree Ruby has been rude to the public and puts on a show. She plays favourites and although may have been working with the Marshal she is clueless. Her office now is all about who she can help in her family. First, old man Ronald and her brother who has no experience but is allowed to carry a gun. Did he go to police academy? What qualifies him to work there? Ruby drives around town with the Marshals car full of kids, is this ethical? I doubt it! Since the Marshal died no one is ever at that office, it's empty and no one answers the phone! Ever!! 9th ward people better wake up!!! Anyone who was truly qualified should walk away with this race!! A much needed change is what Kaplan needs!!!!

Exactly what has she done to say she is doing a great job? Do your homework! Not saying they have anyone great running at all but I'm not convinced if she is the right choice after researching a few issues.
Im for LaPoint

I agree she has her favorites, and thinks she is a cop. Her position has nothing to do with the police force. If she wants to be a police officer to direct parking at a football game, drive to KHS away games (for what?) or boss people around in town, she should be a police officer instead. The Marshal's position works with City Court Judge and serves Court summons and keeps the peace in the public. Driving around Kaplan in the Marshal's car with a car load of kids and friends just doesn't cut it.

LaPoint has my vote for her sincerity,compassion for the public and treating people FAIRLY.... Vote # 61 On Nov 6th or start absentee voting now.....

people please think about who you will elect for next city marshal. do you want someone who uses the city marshal car at her conveniece. does she know that it is not to ride or bring convicted felons as her guest to marshal's conventions. what a way to represent the marshal's office.if she wants to act like a cop , fill an application with boyd adams, the chief. do you also know that the government wants a audit of her office? she has also been having tickets fixed at election time. look who is backing her it is the same control of the city, things will never change.expierence she does not have all she did was answer the phone in the marshal's office. mr. percy did all his work himself, that is why after he passed she was way behind in her work of delivering citations for court, and had to hire someone to help her. i thinl if mr. percy would have backed anyone it would have been his niece. if the manceaux's would not have been doing their job they would not have been there for so long. this job needs no experience just someone who can do the work of delivering citations and helping the people of the 9th ward and city of kaplanwith honesty and respect.

I happened to be getting my nails done at Kim's when I overheard a conversation I could NOT BELIEVE! They said they were at Christian Who Cares and seen Ruby walk in to to check on (community service) workers talking. She Clapped her hands and said "GET TO WORK, GET TO WORK", then stood there with her hands on hips! Then when a man was doing community service to pay off a ticket and was ordered to cut the bushes and grass at Police dept and City Court by the Judge Ruby demanded him to stop and clean ALL the city workers cars!!!OMG!!! We are humans and deserve to be treated with respect!I even heard people are serving 30 days just to not be ordered around and treated like an animal by Ruby!!!

NO, he refused to wash them anyways! I think city employees have too much respect and morales to get them washed anyways. They probably told Ruby to stop doing that! Thanks for your reply. Wish I was up at midnight when you made the comment to reply sooner.
JUST SAYING (: Have a great day!

voters beware those of you who ruby has told you she helped you out on a ticket ,better check with city court to make sure. hardly no warrants have been served after this election started. sooner or later they have to be served. is this worth a t-shirt. remember this is how the marshal's office is funded,through tickets being served and paid.can you remember the last time you got cookies and coffee in the court room? does that pay for votes. remember people after elections are over she will be back to herself and treating people like she always did with no respect! think about if this is how you want the next marshal to operate this office, with no honesty or respect for the people of this community.i think we are smarter than that.

I really was going to vote for Ruby with her experience and all but I wanted to reaearch ETHICS Board website to confirm my decision. To my surprise almost all of her reports were filed late and others were missing. How can someone enforce the law when they are not law abiding???

YES!!!! "she does not have all she did was answer the phone in the marshal's office. mr. percy did all his work himself, that is why after he passed she was way behind in her work of delivering citations for court, and had to hire someone to help her. i thinl if mr. percy would have backed anyone it would have been his niece. if the manceaux's would not have been doing their job they would not have been there for so long. this job needs no experience just someone who can do the work of delivering citations and helping the people of the 9th ward and city of kaplan with honesty and respect."

Agree with your statements! The Marshal was a honest, kind man and felt sorry for Ruby. If he would have been alive I can GUARANTEE he would have backed his NIECE instead of Ruby! Unfortunately majority of Kaplan was confused and believed the things this woman said! It's not gonna be a tough decision this Saturday! Vote Brodney Mouton
