Well, Well, Well, It looks as though you also have some facts to get together, because I also know this family personally and they do not have good jobs, homes, and families and both Jeremy and Dusty are DOPE HEADS!!!!!
Well, well, well I also have the facts this is Dusty's wife!!! He has been living in Baton Rouge for two years and has an awesome job in which he supports a family and his child. I also will have you know that I am a very educated working woman as well and would not marry a DOPE HEAD! And I will have you know we just bought a house in the middle of Baton Rouge and both have new cars and way more morals than you obiously have. The past is the past so why don't you go find something better to do with yourself besides sit here and talk nonsense about stuff that has nothing to do with who becomes City Marshall! Mr.Blaine is a good father and would also serve his town in anyway possible.

And you also have a ton of debt. Lets see if you are still saying that your husband is this great guy after he deserts your ass and you can't find him for a month and leaves you stranded with the kids. Time will tell. You just met this guy and you no nothing about his criminal past.

You need to stop talking about me or give me your real name and we can handle this situation outside of these stupid blogs! If you are such a man and know so much about me then why don't you contact it to me and say what you got to say about me to my face. This has nothing to do with the race!!! So get a life!

yea, Let's be honest, if you don't need experience, then why do you suppose we've always elected a person with prior law enforcement experience. do the research!!
Maybe we have always elected someone with experience because the vast majority of the voters dont actually know what the marshals job or many of the other political offices consist of. It could be a result of ones own ignorance by just being a follower, and may have actually been an advantage of past politicians. Unfortunately, people are becoming more educated and are starting to realize that political offices are operated much more efectively when held by a candidate with some kind of management experience. I'll agree that having law enforcement experience is a plus, but lets face it most cops are not management material, thats why they are cops, they are rough and tuff and like to beat people up. I mean realistically this could be why police departments are usually run so poorly. They never have any money and they really cant afford to hire anyone worth paying. What people dont see is that being in a political seat means being in charge of an organization...wouldnt you want someone with some kind of business experience, organizational skills, hard working, and a proven business man. Im pretty sure that anyone can learn to be a police officer relatively quickly, how long is the academy? But years of leadership skills and business management are not taught in an academy. Good luck to both candidates and lets try to make an educated vote and put someone in office that "will" make a "positive" difference!

Blaine Matte is the most qualified candidate in this race, He has the training knowledge and expertise to be our city marshal, He was trained by the best, The Louisiana State Police, He is very much a peoples person and a man you can talk to if you have a problem I ask everyone in Evangeline parish to join me in Electing him as our next city marshal, if we elect Blaine Matte we will have a very professional city marshals office one we can all be proud of. Blaine Matte a man for all the people.

Mike Lee should have been in the Run Off on this Election. Or should of won by a land slide. He was and still is doing a great job. Qualifications you all talk about? Mike has the most Qualifications! He’s already doing the job. How could you get more qualified than that? I believe something happened with those machines, doesn’t seem right to me.
I just love what just a thought said; political offices are operated much more effectively when held by a candidate with some kind of management experience. I'll agree that having law enforcement experience is a plus, What people don’t see is that being in a political seat means being in charge of an organization...wouldn’t you want someone with some kind of business experience, organizational skills, hard working, and a proven business man. But years of leadership skills and business management are not taught in an academy. Well written! Mike Lee I'm sorry you didn't stay in there! And I’m sure your business will stay being successful. Just Politics are not like they used to be. They’re just so crooked. The only other Candidate out there with business skills is Ronald. And I know he will be there to help people. Black or White, Ronald is Liked. And that is whom I'm leaning to. Not someone who lies, Cheats.

You did mention lies and cheating and being crooked. You must have not read the Ville Platte Gazette the news about the scandel at Crooked Creek, which Ronald Doucet was in charge of. I believe it read Gross mismanagement of funds....HUM Still leaning towards Ronald???

I suppose it is for the same reason that Ronald T won't go to jail for stealing from Crooked Creek.

Well, its done ronald is the city marshall. I would encourage you to research your information before throwing acusations. Had you looked into the "crooked creek scandall" you would have learned that ronald has no part into what took place there. You would also know that no charges have ever been filed on Mr. doucet. It appears as the whole "crooked creek scandal" that you speak of was only a desperate attempt to increase your candidates votes, but in doing so you made yourself appear incompetent! Yes ronald does see-over crooked creek and if it makes you a criminal because one of your employees may have stole, then i guess you would be correct. Lets face it I guess every bank president in evangeline parish and every business owner are all crooks because im pretty sure they have all had employees that have stole! whats dissapointing is that both of these candidates would have made a great marshall. That being said we dont have to bad mouth one or the other, Blaine Matte is a great guy and would have made a brilliant marshall, but Ronald doucet apparently out worked him. I have to be satisfied with the choice the people made and think that we are fortunate to have a man that we know is a hard worker in the seat. Lets face it, what Ronald accomplishent was as close to a miracle as it gets. He, as a black man, through hard work and dedication mannaged to beat a very well respected, well trained, and qualified white man in a predominatly racist community. We can only hope now that he harnesses that energy and puts it into our city marshals office!

Come on, I read your comment and enjoyed it till you made the comment about a "racist community." I can promise you that Ronald recieved more white votes than Blain Matte recieved black votes. So, with that being said, are you commenting that the black citizens in the community are "racist." Check out the election poll returns to confirm my information.
