Former Livingston Parish Councilman Randy Delatte has announced he will run for the District 8 Livingston Parish Council seat in the October election.

“District 8 will be facing some critical issues in the next four years,” said Delatte. “I will bring a vast amount of experience and leadership to represent our families and businesses in our part of Livingston Parish.”

Delatte also points out that while serving as Livingston Parish’s first Building Official, he helped create the process for responsible development in the parish.

Delatte also has experience in the private sector as a business owner and part of a large construction organization. He worked for Turner Industries, Tracer, Inc., Cajun Contractors, Big River Industries and he owned R & D Construction Services.

“As a small business owner, I have the common sense and self-motivation to be an effective parish councilman. I know how to tackle the tough problems facing our district. I will use my problem-solving skills to work with the Parish President to get jobs started and completed.”

Delatte helped organize the Fifth Ward Volunteer Fire Department, provided free meals on Thanksgiving for Senior Citizens and served as a youth basketball coach. Delatte also served as Jaycee President, and he was elected the Jaycee District Director for the State of Louisiana.

“I can bring a high degree of skill, initiative, and experience to the Livingston Parish Council,” said Delatte. “I will be an accessible parish councilman. My past experience along with fresh ideas will enable me to tackle the tough problems such as mandated jail expenses, youth recreation opportunities, road overlays, road drainage, and flood control for the entire district”.

The Election for Livingston Parish Council is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019.
