Special Police Jury Meeting Next Tuesday

The Lincoln Parish Police Jury will meet in special session next Tuesday (12/15) at the Lincoln Parish Library Events Center, 910 North Trenton.

Here are the agendas.

At 5:30 PM, the Personnel/Benefits Committee will meet for “consideration of complaint.” Presumably, this is the issue that was brought up earlier this week regarding Tracey Calowell’s allegation of harassment by Parish Administrator Doug Postel.

The full jury will meet at 6:30 PM, and on their agenda is appointment of Jan Canterbury to the Lincoln Parish Library Board of Control.

Also, the jury will consider adopting for tax year 2020 a .55 mil property tax for the library. This is the portion of the tax that pays for the building’s construction bonds. The jury’s 2020 amended and 2021 proposed budgets are on the agenda, too.

    Wow, Walter. You’d think as much as I’ve been in the news lately…

    He’ll slip out of this too

      The Leader is helping him with that article they wrote. Postel got a quote. Where was Calloway‘a quote? Many members on that jury are as much a snake as Postel. No wonder they fought to have Postel and not Calloway. Calloway is a stand up guy. They couldn’t handle that level of honesty.

        We actually reached out to Mr. Calloway before anyone else. He declined to comment, which is his right. Even so, we repeatedly cited his complaint letter in the story so that it wouldn’t be one-sided.

        We actually reached out to Mr. Calloway before anyone else. He declined to comment, which is entirely his right and not a problem. Even so, we made sure to cite his complaint letter multiple times so that the story wouldn’t be one-sided.

        Oops it didn’t even say it posted once and then it posted twice.

    Defund the library it’s only used by freeloaders, perverts and a few normal citizens. School kids have computers so they have access to information.

    As of today my livelihood and my family are no longer dependent on the Lincoln Parish Police Jury, so “the gloves are off.” My opinion, for what it’s worth, is that Postel is bad for Lincoln Parish. I have a wealth of first hand evidence to back that claim. I only speak honestly. I won’t lie or bend the truth. I truly believe that’s why I didn’t get the job in the first place. Ask me anything you want. If it doesn’t jeopardize me or my family, I’ll answer it.

    I just found out they didn’t ask for his keys back! If Postel was so worried about how “unhinged” Calloway was, why didn’t they make sure they had his keys before he left?! He had physical master keys to every parish facility…you would think they would be concerned about that

    See… the thing is…the only information the jury gets is from Postel. He can feed them anything he wants. He controls it. Just like he controls what is fed to the public.

    There are a lot of unhappy people in Lincoln Parish gub’mint offices right now because of this man because he doesn’t play nice. Sheriff’s Office? Assessor? Probably more. The only way to change the situation is they speak up instead of sitting around and complaining. My bet is they won’t take their chance during this meeting. Too politically risky.

    I think Postel about to be relieved of his duties

    In response to some of these posts: the denial of key fob access to the PJ office was Postel’s direct response to my speaking out against the police jury, and to my plain speak to him. It was unnecessary and ill advised. I’m not an employee of the PJ, but worked for them and every other parish agency. Despite Postel’s concerns about my actions after I spoke out, my access to other facilities and agencies went unchanged.

    One poster made a reference to my keys. Their post was referring to my last day. When I left on my last day, no one asked or made sure that my keys (keys to almost everything) were turned in. If the PJ office were so concerned about their security, they should have made sure they had all my keys. And yet, i wasn’t contacted by the PJ office at all and I voluntarily left my keys on my desk.

      Because they are clueless Tracey. Clueless. And a disgrace to the parish. Courtney was stellar . These jurors need to go and take Postel with them.

    • Anonymous Says:

      Was that 24/7 access to the other agencies?

      • Tracy Calloway Says:

        Yes. Excluding the Judge’s Office who restricted everyone, every other agency I serviced, included the PJ, allowed and desired for me to have 24 hour access to their offices for nearly ten years. I often worked after hours or on weekends doing upgrades during their downtime…as IT professionals often do. Those agencies include the DA, Sheriff, Detention Center, Clerk, Assessor, Fire Dept, GIS, etc. Only after I stood up fir myself did Postel and the PJ decide to restrict my access. What was so silly was that I still had a physical key that would open their back door, but I respected their wishes and never used it.

    Laughing at the stupidity as he walks out the door. I’m sure he’s in a better situation than having to deal with Postel and this jury.

      Tracey you speak and write so well. You would have been much better than Postel. The jury lost a great leader.
