Jackson Parish Police Jury Pay Raise Tabled

On a motion by Jackson Parish Police Jury’s Chuck Garrett (Ward 6), and seconded by Lynn Treadway (Ward 7), an agenda item to restore a pay cut for jurors instituted two years ago was tabled unanimously at last night’s meeting of the jury.

As the situation now stands, monthly pay for each juror will be cut to $600/month, effective 1/11/16. That action was taken at the 12/16/13 meeting, almost two years ago.

Presently, jurors are paid $1,200/month, with the president’s pay set at $1,350/month.

Last night’s activity comes right after last Saturday’s election that saw four of the seven jury seats settled, but with three others to be decided in a Saturday, November 21 runoff election.

Elected without opposition last Saturday were Eddie Langston (Ward 2), and Maxie Monroe (Ward 5). Todd Culpepper (Ward 1) bested his opponent Tom Goss, 477 to 419. Goss had previously served as Ward 1 juror.

Also winning outright in Ward 6 was Regina Rowe over Rod Potts, Jr., 287 to 234. Incumbent Chuck Garrett didn’t seek reelection.

To be decided are:

Ward 3 – Amy McGee (Incumbent) vs Allen Lindsay
Ward 4 – Billy Bryant (Incumbent) vs Johnny McCarty
Ward 7 – Lynn Treadway (Incumbent) vs Rodney Potts
