Pellerin seeking re-election to Dist. 5, Acadia Parish Police Jury
Jimmie Pellerin today announces his re-election bid to the District 5 seat on the Acadia Parish Police Jury.
He says, “It has given me much pride to serve you as Police Juror for the residents of Acadia Parish. A journey it has been serving the constiuents of District 5 by allowing me to gain experience, knowledge, purpose and trust of the fine City of Rayne.
I am asking for your continued support by re-electing me on October 12, 2019.
I’m looking forward to continue full-time accessibility and listen to your concerns and problems as they arise. I feel your ideas and suggestions are not only important, but gives us all a sense of progress as we work together.
Finding real solutions to problems may be very challenging, for example the distribution of free trash canisters throughout the parish. Also, allowing our trash pick-up to be free of charge for us all to benefit.
Therefore, walking during the campaign west of Rayne made me feel encouraged to see homeowners and renters taking time to cut grass, clearing deplorable houses and remove unwanted trees and debris allowing their neighborhoods to remain clean. A perfect time to give credit to “team employees” such as garbage collection of canisters and grapler truck pick-ups.
As a taxpayer, I will remain committed to initiating responses to your concerns and investigating all options to ensure the best possible solutions. Such as, being mindful of signing up for a bridge changed on Nation Road approximately nine years years ago. This same bridge today is now completed as of spring of 2019.
I’m also waiting for a small bridge project to take place soon on Nation Road. This will be a major improvement created for safe daily passage.
I also take important steps allowing choice of ambulance use, hospital provisions, health units and walk-in clinics, all promoting good health.
I’ve also been instrumental in improving drainage of canals and ditches with valuable team work
“Our future is promising and together we need to continue our work. I will maintain efforts to protect our environment, oversee the operations of District 5’s health facilities, advocate for economic development and promptly respond to your concerns.
I am a son, a father, a husband, a semi-retired farmer, a citizen, and a faithful Christian with honest values and insightful wisdom gained through many of life lessons.
I am also a believer - a believer in the people of Acadia Parish and our potential to do great things for our community.
Please remember to exercise your right to vote on October 12.”
