AG Opines no Dual Office Holding Violation in Jackson Parish Tax Office

A year after an advisory opinion was requested from Louisiana’s Attorney General, Assistant AG Madeline Carbonette wrote that Town of Jonesboro Alderwoman Nia Evans could also serve as Jackson Parish Tax Commission Administrator without violating the state’s Dual Officeholder Law.

Wrote Carbonette:

La. R.S. 42:63(D) does not prohibit holding an elected office in a political subdivision and full time employment in a separate political subdivision. Because Jonesboro and the Agency are separate political subdivisions, a member of the Board is not prohibited from serving as the Administrator of the Agency.

Jonesboro Mayor James Bradford had requested the opinion.
