Parish President

Residents & Visitors, 

As a lifelong resident of St. James Parish, I am deeply honored to serve as Parish President. My first year in office has come to a close and I reflect back on the many unique challenges we've faced and our triumphs. 

I am proud of the accomplishments we have achieved thus far and I have continued to set goals and hold my administration to the highest standards. We are committed to bringing the best services to our residents. 

Our parish and community has a unique and special history. From agriculture to industry, St. James Parish provides a wealth of opportunity for individuals, businesses and families alike to make St. James Parish a place they can work, play and live. 

It is my hope to continue to provide improved essential services to our residents, to streamline our government operations and continue to save taxpayer dollars through these initiatives. 

I look forward to serving this great parish and pushing forward for more progress to build a better future for each of us and our future generations to come.
