Blain Matte is the only qualified canidate. This should not be a hard decision to make if you vote on the qualifications.

Why didn't Blaine Matte arrest is own sons when he was in law enforcement. Everyone knows they were the biggest drug dealers in town.

They are far from the biggest dealers in town and they where arrested more than once. I also know that while at the Police station he would beat the crap out of them and leave them in jail. You cann't blame a daddy because his kids screw up. If you know the family so well you also know that the kids did not live with Blain and he also did not work around here.

He is a nice fellow but has no clue of what he is getting into. Roanld is a fair person but has no law enforcement experience. Barry Vidrine should have run. I have no doubt that Barry would have been a stronger canidate. I also know that Barry would have carried a large number of white votes.

Let's be honest, the job of City Marshal doesn't require any law enforcement experience. The primary function of the office is to deliver documents on behalf of the City Court. I have no doubt that a large percentage of our citizenry could handle this job, including any of the 3 qualifiers for the position.

Why wouldn’t someone want to keep Mike Lee in this Office for City Marshal?
He’s already in this Office and doing a great JOB! Those who have ever dealt with him know him. Just go and ask anyone who has gone to him for help he’ll go the extra mile for you. I know first hand, he’s helped my family and I. He’s always willing to help out, no matter who you are. Wouldn’t you want to keep him in there? You never know if you get in a situation and have to go to City Court.
Who knows how Ronald, or Blaine would be. Mike Lee has already proved himself.

Did you know that Barry Vidrine is for Mike Lee all the way? Did you know that they have been great friends for a long time? that is what Mr Barry Vidrine told me first hand. And that he would like to see Mike Lee stay as the City Marshal.
That should show you who's the best canidate.

Hey Common Sense, If you don't think you need law enforcement experience, just suppose you tell me how the Marshall's Office executes arrest warrants and has powers of arrest in other incidents. As far as the comment about candidate Matte's kids and their alledged drug dealings, don't judge someone by the actions of their ADULT offspring. I wonder if anyone in your family ever experimented with drugs, or if maybe they shared some with friends or relatives like yourself. I'm sure Matte's son who is a Lieutenant in the police department would be willing to discuss your claim that ALL of Matte's kids dealt drugs. Call him if you get a chance and inform him of your not so intelligent comment you made here. And as far as the race goes, the one with the most votes is gonna win, and no one knows yet who that is.

Thank you shiney one I could not have said it better. I don't think people have a clue what our poor Police and Marshals officers see and go through on a daily basis.

I was told that Blain talked about starting a reserve force if he is elected. I think this is a great idea and would help both the public and his department. If anyone else heard this please confirm.

Listen here I don't know who is posting these polls on this website, but it sure is a hoax! Why would Ronald Doucet be on the top? And all this BS on who has the most experience. Go do some real research and find out what a City Marshal is all about. Then come and make your comments.

You do some research I know what the City Marshal should do. I have worked with and around the City Marshal for years. Go cry somewhere else if you don't like the freedom of speech we have in this country. I don't like the poll results either but everyone does have the right to vote.

I have a question for you, What change? And yes, our community has come along way, But what change do we need in changing a City Marshal? This man is already doing a good job. So, why do you think that Ronald Doucet could do a better one? Because of his color? Well, I'm a colored person too and I'm proud of who I am, And I'm not looking at color. This man treats everyone the same, no matter who you are. Have you ever dealt with him before?

Let’s be clear, you are correct, the Marshal does perform some aspects of law enforcement. The City Marshal executes warrants. However, the Marshal has the ability to utilize whatever resources he needs. In addition, the Ville Platte City Police often accompany and assist the Marshal and/or Deputy Marshals in executing warrants. In any case, I believe any one of these men are more than capable of administering the measures of law enforcement necessary to do the job. Once again, I believe most of us would be capable of performing in this capacity. Fortunately, each of these individuals are familiar with Ward 1 and the people who live here. Quite frankly, that knowledge will help any one of these men efficiently and effectively contact individuals who need to be served on behalf of City Court. Good luck choosing a candidate, I like all 3.
