Lincoln Parish Fire Protection District #1 Board Chair Tom Thompson is upset that the Lincoln Parish Police Jury (LPPJ) did not last week rubber stamp his recommendations for reappointment to the district’s Board of Commissioners.
In a letter copied to all board and jury members, Thompson wrote:
The current members of the commission appointed by the Police Jury are qualified to serve in this capacity and have a near perfect attendance record.
Thompson also wrote:
If the jury is so concerned about the business of Fire District, shouldn’t they be attending these (board) meetings and events instead of listening to coffee shop rumors? Questions and concerns about the Fire District should be addressed by extending the common courtesy of making an appointment with the Chief or Chairman to discuss perceived problems instead of airing it before the public.
