Matassa fires HR Director Taleta Wesley

August 16, 2017: Matassa announces Wesley’s hire

Multiple sources have confirmed that Parish President Kenny Matassa terminated Human Resources Director Taleta Wesley today.  The reasons behind Wesley’s firing are unclear.

At the latest meeting of the Parish Council the body voted to hire an outside firm to write job descriptions which drew fire from three council members.

Wesley was hired in August 2017 after a “national search.”

Pelican Post will have more as details become available.
