Another wise decision by Sorrento Council: Robert Debate appointed to serve

Robert Debate sworn in by Judge AJ Kling

On Tuesday (February 5) Robert Debate was appointed to fill the vacancy on Sorrento’s council created by Randi Sutton’s departure.  As the town continues to grapple with drainage/flooding issues Debate was the best possible choice the governing authority could  have made.

Debate’s encyclopedic knowledge of Sorrento’s history (especially when it comes to drainage), if utilized, will be an invaluable asset to the town and surrounding areas of unincorporated Ascension Parish.  His no-nonsense approach and willingness to speak uncomfortable truth will only bolster a council which has exhibited these rare commodities over the last few years.
