Ok all u law abiding an christian citizens of Ville Platte what u have to say. How can one uphold the law when he breaking the law by using a fake address just to run for chief of police. The good thing about it is that the our present an past District Attorney knows allowed it to happen. Lol

The Chief is governed by the Lawrson Act and it states that he must reside where he is domicile which means he is in violation of the law.

This more a registar of voters question, than a DA issue. If his domicile residence is in the city limits then there shouldnt be a problem. I think it would be hard to prove where a person truely resides, if he has a second home or camp. Didn't vote for the current chief, but i can't say he is doing a bad job.

No No No, Leagally he qualifies to run by the RULES of the registar's of voter's office the problem is he is governed by the Lawrson Act once he became Chief, that is where he is breaking the LAW. See the difference? It will take a judge to decide which he should follow, A Rule or A LAW ? I should think the LAW , don't you?

The house he use for an address is not his ok an his wife works for housing authority in ville platte an she use the address in belaire cove an well as his children school record. This needs to b investigated an complaints have been made but the present an former DA wont take the complaints. The DA office needs to b investigated too.

i think the question would be, where was his primary residence at the time he was elected, and if it was not contested then it is too late now. i don't think you have to resign during a term because you change adress. maybe he doesn't plan to run for re-elction. i'm sure if a formal complaint would be filed to appropriate parties, it would be addressed.
whatever

Mercyme12,
Sounds to me like the chief and the DA didn't kiss your ass so now you are pissed off. What happened? Did you or someone you know go to jail and then the charges WERE NOT dropped?
I don't know who you are and personally, I really don't care, but
if you have issues with people, why hide behind a fake screen name and post shit on the Internet. Oh I know why, could it be because you are a coward?
I tell you what, they sell pacifiers at most of the local stores in Ville Platte. Why don't you go get yourself one.

Barney Fife, It neened to be contested before the election to disqualify him from being qualified to run for Chief and if not done before the dead line then tough luck and that is only a rule to qualify , the problem now is that he was electected and is now governed bt a set of Laws called the Lawrson Act not rules, This is a Law that he now violates and for the Record, He is not doing a good job in fact, he does not give a shit about the department or the town and only cares about his greedy self, always did always will !!!!!!1

Read the the Lawrason Act, unless i missed something, it doesn't saying anything about address once elected. if i missed it please tell me what page and approximate line. It does mandate that the chief be a resident prior to being elected.
