      What a US Senatorial election that could decide the balance of power in the senate over the next four years is not important enough. What should upset you is that we just had a presidential election with the lowest turnout in 20 years at about 57%. What should really bother you and me and every other tax payer is that only about half of the ellegable adults in this country go register to vote and then on Election Day usually around 60% of those folks show up to vote.

      All that being said this is a renewal of a tax that has been in place for more than 70 years and has never gone up so that we can have descent roads in the parish. Our Parish roads on average are in much better shape than most of the state roads that run through our parish. This is one of the areas where our Police Jury is doing a good job and we should continue to support it.
