Let me guess , these are blacks doing this to , and I'm sure the mayor and his blacks on the board is behind this,
pathetic

It was all legally done on court. This is nothing more than a racial tactic because the poor Mayor didnt get his way. Run the town efficiently and the FA and all the meetings with the legislative review committee will go away. Poor mayor wont be left alone because he is black. No, its because he is incompetent!

This has been my town for ovr 60 years, I cannot for the life of me believe that everytime I return home just for a time, I find the mayor being badly critized for all he has tried to do to improve this sorry ass town!!!

Questions cross my mine about this too, how many mayors in this parish been to hell and back like this mayor has over lies and BS? What kind of improvements did they do? Why isn't there a boys and girls town for the kids here also? Yall vote on this.

What will it take for all you blind followers ti see that the mayor is not doing his job? How many more mostakes must be made? He has done nothing for this town. Name one thing productive he has done. All yhe money that has been acquored over the years is gone, with nothing to show for it. The town is literally falling apart. The water system is crumbling. City hall is a joke, no one there has a clue what they are doing. It is ridiculous.
It is not lies people. The mayor will bankrupt this town by the first of the year.
hmmm

you know lollipop has only partial truth to their statement.....we have had some crooked people who have been in office here the difference was they still had pride for their town they would have never allowed this town to have hit rock bottom like this....it isn't a racial issue it's a matter of commitment loyality and pride in a town and the people in it!! Why take a position as mayor of a TOWN when you don't even care about the town you are in charge of?? Why doesn't anyone also see that continuing to want to just pass blame off on a mayor isn't doin any good!! It's gone further than that now!!! Someone needs to get off their asses and DO SOMETHING!!! BE SOMEONE!!!! MAKE A CHANGE!!! TAKE A STAND!!! Our town is dying and we need to be more worried about rebuilding it than driving it further into ashes by just barking about the racial thing!!!
