Activist urges Port Allen to reject drive to recall mayor

PORT ALLEN — A New Orleans pastor on Tuesday called the petition to recall Mayor Demetric “Deedy” Slaughter a hoax and urged residents to reject the drive by picketing local businesses until City Council members give the mayor the respect she deserves.

“The legislative branch is trying to run the executive branch in this town,” the Rev. Raymond Brown, a civil rights activist with National Action Now, said Tuesday afternoon outside of Port Allen City Hall. “It’s a gross misconduct of justice. You have to respect the mayor and her authority. If not, we’ll come into town and start marching and demonstrating and picketing businesses in this area.”

Brown made his comments after Tuesday’s special meeting of the City Council, which followed by one day an announcement that Councilmen Garry Hubble and Hugh “Hootie” Riviere were signing the petition to recall Slaughter, citing two longtime city employees who abruptly quit their jobs on Friday.

Hubble and Riviere said five city employees had resigned within the past few weeks because Slaughter had created a hostile work environment.
