Long rumored to be interested in an At-Large Jefferson Parish Council seat, District 1 Councilman Chris Roberts has formed a committee to elect him to the At-Large seat vactated by new Parish President John Young and announced a campaign kickoff party.
The campaign kickoff party will be held on Saturday, October 30th and feature music from Amanda Shaw & The Cute Guys.
Roberts who is term-limited in his District seat, would relinquish his District seat early if elected. He would also need to seek a full-term in October 2011. His current term expires December 31st 2011.
District 1 serves portions of the City of Gretna, as well as the towns of Jean Lafitte and Grand Isle, the Terrytown area and portions of unincorporated Jefferson Parish on the West Bank.
Prior to his council election in 2003, Councilman Roberts was a member of the Jefferson Parish School Board.
Once again, Chrissy seems to be going whole hog.
Update: I’ve a picture of the invite of the Terrytown soiree. ~ sop
