Council approves temporary appointment

On Friday, June 4, the Donaldsonville City Council met in a special meeting to appoint Lauthaught Delaney Sr. to serve District One temporarily.

This appointment came due to the death of Councilman Tony Huey last week, who suffered with cancer.

Although this serves as a temporary appointment, regular election will take place Oct. 2.

"It is my pleasure to have the opportunity to serve with the other councilmen, I plan to work towards the betterment of the city," says Delaney. "I want to change and work on things in District One, and my plan is to work with the people, not against."

All councilmen welcomed Delaney aboard and looks forward to serving with him.
