Corey Orgeron has perfected the art of buffoonery. Dozens of fanciful, wholly unsubstantiated claims having already been made, Orgeron’s latest absurdity is his masterpiece.
The stage is set for a large steering committee to research then manage $1.2 Billion in recovery money to address the watershed problems exposed in the 2016 floods.
As a citizen I ask, WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG to form a committee? If a regional steering committee is needed it should have been created soon after the August 2016 flood; government wasted three years arguing over who will be in control of one of the largest money grabs in local history.
Because of fiascos such as this, it is imperative that WE are represented by individuals experienced in negotiating and mediating serious matters involving local, state and federal officials. I am the only candidate with this experience. In my private law practice I have worked with numerous government agencies to negotiate flood plain management, levee creation, water diversion and other matters involving the movement of water.
Ascension Parish has been neglected for far too long by officials that want the title but do not want to do the work. It’s time for a Change in District 4.
I look forward to serving you, my neighbors!!
Elect Corey Orgeron – Parish Council D4
Our initial reaction to this idiocy was snickering disdain, but then we realized that there are those among us…
who don’t care that Orgeron is a clown willing to turn an election into a circus. To what shameless depths is he willing to sink as a member of Ascension’s governing authority?
The Louisiana Watershed Initiative (what Orgeron terms “a large steering committee”) is being impaneled since HUD recently finalized its rules for dispensation of $1.2 billion for flood damage mitigation spurred by 2016 flooding (including the March floods). Who believes Corey Orgeron could have lit a fire under the Department of Housing and Urban Development?
We are willing to lay odds that Corey Orgeron never worked with any “government agency to negotiate flood plain management, levee creation, water diversion and other matters involving the movement of water.” We challenge him to cite a single example.
