|Police juror endorses Mayo for mayor|
I, Ouachita Parish Police Juror for District F, endorse Jamie Mayo for Mayor.
As an elected official, I know how important it is to work with other elected officials, community leaders, and the people in the community. That has been the case with Mayor Jamie Mayo. It is a fact that Mayor Jamie Mayo has worked with me and supported several projects in my district.
In July 2010, the Ouachita Parish Public Works Department Director, Assistant Director, and I met with Mr. Tom Janway and several other Monroe Public Works Department employees to discuss the flooding problems in four subdivisions south of Monroe.
We determined the problem: the Auto Shred Canal off Richwood Road No. 2 and the Nutland Road Airport Ditch near the old State Farm building were causing the flooding problems. These areas had not been cleaned out for nearly twenty (25) years. It was a Ouachita Parish Police Jury problem, yet the jury did not have the funds to fix the problem.
However, Mayor Mayo and the City of Monroe were there to help. The Police Jury agreed to obtain the right-of-ways and the City of Monroe agreed to fund the project for the Parkview and Trishell Apartments; Robinson Place Subdivision; King Oaks Subdivision; East Parkview Subdivision located behind the old State Farm building.
I know many of you are asking why Mayor Mayo would help the Parish. The reason is because all the people who are affected by the flooding live in the City of Monroe. By the end of March 2012, the jury plans to acquire the last 2 right- of- ways for the project.
This is just one of the many ways Mayor Mayo has helped District F. After the election, I am looking forward to continue working with Mayor Mayo and the City of Monroe. We want to develop a Hwy 165 South Corridor plan which will bring businesses south of Monroe, increase tourism south of Monroe, and resolve the illegal dumping and litter problems in the parish.
I believe Mayor Jamie Mayo has been good for our community. Please join me and vote for Jamie Mayo on Saturday, March 24. Working together we will continue to make a difference in our community.
