Lea Williams is already campaigning. Also heard Z Dave Deloach. Lord help us if those are our only choices. This may have been a larger mistake than many anticipated. Should've known those committee members had an agenda....

I feel john hashager has done an excellent job as parish manager and would do a good job as parish president.
I would hope he puts his hat in the ring.

Lee Williams has always had a level head and good management skills. I will vote for her if she is willing to run.
I heard Tom McVea wanted the position. He is a career politician and has been involved with the PJ business since the Lambert dispute started.

Level headed? Really? She is about as hard headed and and unrational as they come at times. No way I would vote for her, I'm really hoping she loses her seat completly

Not that I'm for Tom either, but to be fair he has been envoled with the PJ way before the River landing dispute, he has helped and advise them on many topics when asked...if I'm not mistaking Lea herself asked his helped on a project not to long ago.

I think everyone is overlooking someone who would be a great choice for the position and that is Lula London. She has brought more federal money into this parish than anybody else. Harwood Apartments, New Jerusalem Estates and the Independence sewer project just to name a few.

NO!!!

She has done NOTHING that has not directly or indirectly benefited her and in my opinion is the wrong person to set the budget for our parish and to fill those 13 positions that the PP will be responsible for.

Williams, Deloach, McVae, Harvey will split the white vote, Ken Dawson will carry the black, depending on voter turn out if he wins or if there will be a run off.
We are doomed!!!

Lea Williams is the most logical choice for this position. She is intelligent, logical and fair. She fought for this Parish in a way no others were brave enough to do.

Put simply, NO SHE IS NOT. She is a nice person but not a business person. She fought for the town, not the parish. Her ideas of fiscal responsibility will keep us in the 19th century. Don't know who holds her chain but, they need to go sip a mint julip and let us move forward.

One should look at the position and what she will be responsible for, nothing she has done shows me she can balance a budget and head out operations and projects that the president will have to.

It is not about “fighting” for this parish, it is about being able to manage people and work as a leader.

Williams is a very successful business woman. She is excellent with finances and running a business.. At a very young age she was a paralegal for a large law firm where she served as office manager and research director. She later received honors as a graduate of Southeastern Louisiana University with a Bachelor of Science degree. She owns property in town as well as out of the Parish. Her interest is promoting the parish and its citizens in a positive light.

I sure hope you all don't think Hashagen is the answer... He is a bully and a smartass! He thinks he knows everything about everything. Not a good choice for this position. He is a power freak. A good example is the sewer out through plantation oaks. He did not communicate to all personnel that he was going to have a contractor dig through their yards and driveways. He also tore the road up. It all has gravel now and knowing the past of this position, there will never be a fix to return it back to the original status. Fire his ass!!!!
