A few examples of items needing a full fleshing out is the District D 24th JDC race involving Julie Quinn as she has an opponent. I’ll note Slabbed swam against the media current well over a year ago in maintaining Quinn had her sights set on the 24th JDC, not the State 5th Circuit Court of Appeals as was reported elsewhere. Quinn is being endorsed by all the usual suspects including Sheriff Noodles and the MIA DA Paul Connick. Unfortunately for Ms. Quinn, she is not Slabbed approved and depending on the quality of her opposition, Slabbed may well have lots to say about this particular race.
Not mentioned in the preceding paragraph is Ms Quinn’s fiance, Parish Prez John Young. By all accounts John is crazy about Julie and we’re completely down with the marital bliss thing here at Slabbed New Media. That said there are political observers in Jefferson Parish that are concerned we are seeing a repeat of South Park Season 3, Episode 3. If this is indeed the case I know of only one way to rectify the issue and even then such is a dicey proposition as there could well be collateral casualties. Lest I digress but back to Mr Parish Prez….
This whole charter change deal has caused open warfare between Parish Prez Young and the Parish Council. Now close your eyes and imagine what the local TeeVee media reaction would be if Diana Bajoie called Stacey Head a “hypocrite” or if Head said Mayor Half Moon’s ego has gotten too large. People would have died from being run over by every TeeVee truck in town headed for City Hall to cover the conflict. After reading Drew Broach’s account of the controversy what we got instead was one big yawn from the video set. Councilman LaGasse must not be photogenic enough for the camera is all I can figure. If I missed where the local TeeVee news covered this please feel free to correct me in comments.
Finally I’d like to give a shout out to all the nice peeps at the Yenni Building, where Slabbed New Media now has a field office. I’ve yet to have to press a button in the elevator as the dedicated civil servants that work there have been very cordial, representing the Parish to the public in an exemplary fashion as the bad ol’ days of the Goatherder reign of terror are well in the rearview mirror. Getting my name on a permanent parking spot is proving to be a tad difficult but John, Chris and the gang up on 10 have a pretty full plate these days so I’m not pressing the issue very hard. My work at the hive reminds me of the olden days when I worked down on Jefferson Highway just south of Elmwood.
In any event we need to roll out some new documents and this time the topic will be Redflex. Stay tuned.
