Well whadda you know folks Aaron Broussard the Parish Prez and Aaron Broussard Inc are in fact a “difference without a distinction”. Let’s examine the following documents to illustrate why:
First up Aaron is a concerned director at First Bank and Trust:
As per my previous discussion with you, I will not accept any compensation from the Bank for Board related work on my part for the months of September, October, November, and December 2005.
As I expressed to you personally, this is my way of showing my support for the bank during these tough times.
Indeed these were tough times as the east bank of the Parish was suffering mightily from the after effects from the flooding that resulted from Broussard’s decision to intentionally flood the Parish via the forced evacuation of the pump operators.
And Aaron was indeed heavily involved with First Bank and Trust as this August 19, 2005 letter to him from FB&T’s Bill Roohi regarding his participation in the Trust Committee indicates. Worth noting in the above linked PDF is the amount of money FB&T could make (or was actually making) from several area pension plans as once again the Southern Baptists prove no one saves more than they, though the Sewage and Water Board has a nice fat pension asset base as well.
I want to make sure everyone understands that there was no “public” in Aaron Broussard’s service as Parish Prez as he rented his office to any and all that were stuffing money in his pocket. To understand the bombshell that is coming we must first examine this email from Jannie Markey at First Bank and Trust to Broussard’s secretary Cindy Roth circa February 20, 2004 as we continue to travel back in time:
Please find attached the letter to Gov. Blanco to be printed out on Parish letterhead for Mr. Broussard’s signature. It may need adjusting to fit the layout of the letterhead. I am sending overnight to you the attachments that will accompany this letter.
Please mail this one for me due to I do not have any envelopes with the Parish logo.
I am also sending overnight to you another letter on Bank letterhead addressed to Mr. Foti (with attachments) for Mr. Broussard’s signature.
Please have him sign and, mail for me.
Thank you for all your help.
Inagine what Jannie could’ve done if she had taxpayer funded Parish logo’d envelopes because of course the taxpayers of Jefferson Parish did indeed have the best Parish Prez money could buy:
Naturally one wonders exactly WTF Joe Canizaro was thinking here because we already knew Broussard is a self-absorbed narcissist but if the folks in Jefferson Parish thought they ranked their politicians, Joe Canizaro begs to differ. Must be nice to be in business and specify which letters lobbying on behalf of that business get to go on official stationery.
This, I submit, is exactly why our country is broke and its citizenry effectively disenfranchised.
