New leadership for Acadia Parish Police Jury


Acadia Parish has new leadership after the police jury voted in a new president and vice president. During the January 14th meeting, A.J. "Fatty" Broussard (District 2) moved on from his position as president.

A.J. Credeur (District 6) promptly nominated longtime juror Alton "Al" Stevenson (District 1). With strong words, Credeur expressed his support for Stevenson, who is currently serving his fifth term.

"Abraham Lincoln once said dedication has no color and the same can be said for Mr. Stevenson," Credeur began. "He has served this jury the longest with care not only for his ward but for the entire parish."

The speech did not sway jurors, as Stevenson's nod failed on a 5-3 vote. Stevenson, visibly disappointed said, "I knew this was not going to work. Had I know you (Creduer) was going to say those things, I would have told you not to."

David Savoy (District 7), currently serving his first term, was nominated next for the position. Savoy, who sits on the Louisiana Association of Crawfish Farmers, was voted in unanimously.
"I just want to make sure that we come together as a panel and make decisions and get to the point quickly," Savoy said.

He also expressed his support for Stevenson, adding, "I love Al, and he always has the support of the people he serves and this jury. Unfortunately, tonight the votes just weren't in his favor."

Vice President Julie Borill (District 3) was replaced by Robert Guidry (District 8). Current Secretary-Treasurer Richard Latiolais retained his position.
