A New Day is Dawning...

It was a close race.  Now comes the real work.  Promises made and promises to keep.  Leadership that will reshape our police department, restore trust and pride for our officers and citizens, and will bring an effective working relationship with the Town Council and the Mayor's Office.

We celebrated quietly at home surrounded by family and close friends who believe in my abilities, trusted that I could win, and gave me the lift each and every day that I needed to cross the finish line.  I appreciated the well-wishers who dropped by with the hugs and the promise of continued support.  We sipped a few beers and feasted on Ginger's jambalaya and red beans and rice.  Nothing fancy, over the top, or obnoxious.  It is a relief to have it over, but exciting to begin the work.

To all who take the time to read the ramblings of a candidate, I hope to continue with a blog, but one that will share information about what is going on in the Police Department.  For so long, false information and misinformation was sent out into the community to be embellished, twisted, or purposefully used to malign or destroy.  I will combat this with honesty and openness.  Information going out will be controlled and filtered, truthful and presented professionally, as opposed to gossip mongering, speculation or second guessing.  Monthly reports will include the positive successes we are having, not just the quantity of arrests, stops and disturbances.  It is just as vital to demonstrate what a progressive and dynamic Police Department is doing.

Arnaudville, a new day has dawned.

The City of Arnaudville has made the right decision. I've known Mr Lecompte for 27 years. He is a man of honesty and integrity with high standards and moral values who believes in family. The future of any Town, City, State and even this great nation depends on the structure of our youth. There is no other mentor to youth than Mr Lecompte. As the founder of Chinchuba's Haunted House in New Orleans 1987-2007, he and his lovely wife Virginia provided the opportunity for thousands of high school students to earn credits toward volunteering for a great cause year round. Mr Lecompte and his wife made these kids a part of something special which kept them occupied and taught them many skills including Construction, acting, costume design, fund raising, makeup, management of people, promotion thru merit of hard work and responsibility and most of all a sense of belonging and benefits of teamwork. The Lecompte's sacrificed 2 decades of their own lives to support this program which raised a few million dollars to educate children that were born deaf. The future of Arnaudville is in good hands.
