Isn't it a shame that Don Menard has so much help in his administration that they can't be responsible to remember when a tax needs to be renewed even though he oversees the spending of these funds. His roads to the future tax last year that failed miserably, included consolidating the taxing districts. So why if he is such a "proven leader" that he can't remember from 1 year ago that these taxes were expiring? Can we afford to have another four years of mismanagement from this inept administration?

YOU MUST BE ONE THAT`S FOR A PROPERTY TAX. THE PEOPLE OF THE PARISH DO NOT WANT ANY MORE TAX. IF THE PEOPLE VOTED DOWN THE ROADS TO THE FUTURE TAX.THEY SHOULD VOTE THESE PROPERTY TAX`ES DOWN ALSO!THEY HAVE 4 DISTRICTS THAT DO NOT HAVE A ROAD TAX,THAT ARE DOING AS GOOD AS THE ONE`S WITH THE TAX,VOTE NO ON THE PRTOPERTY TAX! IF WE CAN`T CONSOLIDATE THE TAXING DISTRTICT`S WE SOULD VOTE DOWN ALL DISTRICT TAXES. IT`S TIME FOR THE PEOPLE TO LOOK AT ST LANDRY PARISH AS ONE DISTRICT,NOT 13 DISTRICT`S!

Wayne Ardoin forgot to renew one of his property tax`s,WHY!! Because if he`d win for Parish Persdent,the people in his district would not have to pay no more tax! He will take care of them and make the poor people of the parish take care of the rich!

That money doesn't go to the Parish Government. It goes to special taxing districts. The Parish Charter charges the Council with the responsibility with these renewals, not the Parish President.
