As the new election season approaches, I am pleased to announce that I am seeking a third term to continue serving you as your Sheriff. For the past seven years, I have demonstrated my effectiveness as your Sheriff and I intend to continue that effectiveness in the years to come.
As I said on the day I first took the oath of office as your Sheriff, Washington Parish is a special place. We are a community of significance. Our pioneering spirit runs generations deep and we have always been a community that reaches out to each other in a spirit of patriotism and love. It is that spirit that has enabled your Sheriff’s Office to effectively manage the many functions of our job and to be the quality law enforcement agency that our beloved parish deserves.
I have been a “hands on” Sheriff, making myself accessible to all persons who want to talk to their Sheriff. I have an open door policy for anyone to come to the office and talk with me at any time. I have freely given my personal cell phone number to thousands so they can reach out to me at any time. In case you don’t have that number, it is (985) 516-0237.
The staff I have assembled is doing an excellent job, whether it is in law enforcement, corrections or tax collection and distribution of tax funds to various parish agencies. I am so pleased to be able to work with these fine individuals, each one of whom stands ready to assist you with any questions or concerns you might have.
Your Sheriff’s Office has focused on helping victims of crime as much as we possibly can. We eagerly pursue those persons who commit crimes in Washington Parish and prey upon honest citizens.
I want to serve as your Sheriff for a third term and I ask for your support and prayers as we journey together through this election season leading up to a vote at the polls on October 12. Call me if you have any questions.
God bless you.
God bless Washington Parish.
God bless America.
