New era ahead in St. Charles
Our View - Jan 10, 2008
St. Charles Parish is on the threshold of a new era this weekend. A new parish president and council will be inaugurated.
There are many tasks that can be undertaken during our new officials’ four years in office. Levee, highway, sewerage and water projects will certainly occupy much of their time. Add to that planning and zoning and a myriad of other concerns their constituents will have should make for busy terms in office.
It appears at this point that voters did well in selecting their new officials. They certainly have the interest of the parish at heart. How they express it will determine their success in office.
Running a parish with the industry and business that exist in St. Charles is not an easy job. It will take time to define the problems and determine the best solutions. We believe they can do it well.
As a previous parish president once coined the phrase that defines St. Charles very well, this if the Parish of Plenty. We have plenty of natural resources. And we have plenty of people in the private sector willing to make the most of it.
