Once again "Clueless in St. Landry", these parish council idiots have wasted the citizen's time and "money" at another meeting. Daily World today reports that instead of finally producing the 2012 budget (due past January), been delayed again and on this ridiculous attack on new Pres. Bill Fontenot. After all of Wayne Ardoin and Pam Gautreaux's whining and complaining about saving money, they are hell-bent on wasting more parish money on investigating Fontenot and thousands of dollars for document request/copying and the parish under their leadership has not added a single grain of road material improvement with this apparent money they say want to redirect to road repair! Spend money on investigation, copy documents they already have access to, just have to get off their butts and go look at them. Incompetent, Andrea West didn't do her job from last month's council request to have her brief ready. All they are doing is wasting time, parish money (none on roads) and not doing their jobs along with Andrea West. Daily World, Eunice News needs to do real investigative reporting and inform us in Opelousas and rest of parish what really is going on and how the actual budget numbers are being handled by them. Once again, "RECALL, RECALL, RECALL" these fools and the state should investigate what should be malfeasance by them for not doing the parish's responsibilities and still not allowing Mr. Fontenot to produce a budget. In private business, business would be bankrupt, closed and these clowns irked long ago !
