Kenna cars Brah: Slabbed sheds light on Mayor Yenni’s ride

Walt Bennetti over at Click Jefferson has been levying some interesting accusations at Mayor Yenni regarding the Kenner vehicle fleet including saying Mayor Yenni is somehow lying about having 6 vehicles for his personal use while simultaneously taking up for Kenner Councilman Carroll for commuting to his personal job on the Kenner taxpayers including curbing his taxpayer funded car resulting in taxpayer paid damage repairs to same. Editorially at Slabbed we do not play favorites when it comes to the wasting of taxpayer money thus the interest in why a Good Government Group would “defend the indefensible”.

As an old auditor with governmental motor pool experience here in Mississippi, Walt’s assertions about Mayor Yenni having a personal fleet of 6 cars just did not seem plausible but to the extent this is Kenna and Louisiana, anything is possible, so I decided to check things out including speaking with Kenner Mayor Yenni Last Friday. This is what I found out.

First off Mayor Yenni is the Grand Poohbah of Kenna and he can indeed use any vehicle in the City’s fleet that he wants.  No surprise there and indeed Mayor Yenni has driven several different CIty vehicles on occasion, including the SUV donated by the Parish to the City that Walt Bennetti has such a problem with, typically when his primary city vehicle, the same SUV driven by former Mayor Muniz is being serviced or in the case of the donated SUV that Walt says is “worthless”, driving several city employees to Baton Rouge for a meeting saving the need for multiple vehicles making the trip.  Contrary to what Walt asserted about Yenni’s uncle driving the donated SUV back in the day (thus the reason Yenni acquired it), I am told by sources familiar with in Parish government during the early 1990s that Mayor Yenni’s uncle drove a 1993 Oldsmobile, an assertion Mayor Yenni also mentioned to Slabbed mainly because he remembered riding in the car when he was a kid.

According to Mayor Yenni, the 2007 Dodge Ram mentioned by Walt Bennetti is driven by the Superintendent of the Public Works Department, the Ford Excursion is a Fire Department vehicle.  There is a 2003 Crown Victoria in the backup fleet that was Mayor Yenni’s car when he was Kenner CAO.  Mayor Yenni’s CAO has opted instead for the auto allowance paid by the City.  There are also several pickup trucks in what Mayor Yenni called the “Wet Fleet” of high water vehicles including the donated SUV, the primary use of which is for high water events for which the New Orleans area is famous. Worth noting is there are 2 Dodge Rams in the City Fleet which were donated after Katrina, and unlike the Jefferson clan in New Orleans, such donations were not skimmed off the top.

In any event there is nothing sexy here except the fight between Walt Bennetti and Mayor Yenni’s coms guy Greg Buisson.  I did find out that my earliest tip about Travers Mackel poking about on the Councilman Carroll’s vehicle use was indeed spot on, but Mackel’s evidently ditched the story when Fox 8 rolled it out first.

As Officer Barbrady would say, “Nothing to see here move along people”.

  1. I was told that when Mayor Yenni died, Mike, who was THEN MAUNIOR went directly into his office & took what he pleased, including a photgraph autographed TO the Mayor, which supposedly hangs in Yenni Henny Penny Beni Hana’s wall as we speak. I forget who signed the photo, but it was probably an athlete or a fellow swine. Also heard that young Mike would visit & organize his Aunt’s closet. His uncle referred to him as a Jenny Woman. Don’t matter to me. Just repeating what I heard from a CREDIBLE Source.

  2. Speakin’ of vehicles, ask Mayor YENNI about the time that city workers saw Michele BRANIGAN going down on him in the back of a CITY VEHICLE at Twilight on 12th Night at the Ponchartrain Center.
    Michele is so fond of those, she named her son B.J.
    Apparently even latent/closet homosexuals cannot resist a blow job, no matter who is doin da sukkin’.

  3. Patricia, you should not be using such cajun words as “doin’ da’ sukkin'” as Prince Criticizing and Had Enuf don’t think they’re funny words.

    But dis’ is da’ question dats still bees mysteriously done not been answered . Why is da’ Kenna’ Administration maintaining a classic refurbished 1992 Suburban gas guzzler? Did a politico get conceived or lose dere virginity wit in da’ love machine to make it so nostalgic. It should have been traded in during da’ Obama $4,000 Cash for Clunkers program.

    1. I’m just a lowly Cajun.
      Don’t know nuttin’ bout no grammatical or political correctness.
      Butt, you can be sho data where they are PIGS….they gonna be a lotta stinkin lyin’!

    2. Patricia is funny and creative (grrrr). You are neither, and it really seems to be getting to you. Go watch Faux News.

      1. Prince Criticizing: You gettin’ to me ? Gettin’ to me? Are you kiddin’ me? You tink yo’ know what funny bees butt yo’ don’t know’

        Prince lets bees honest yo’ nuttin’ butt a stuffed shirt, silked up stockin’ wearing aristocrap liberal who probably laughs two or tree times a year when yo’ fart underwater in yo’ bubble bath.

        And what’s dis’ latest’ buddy buddy approach to Patricia after yo’ criticized her hero, Ashton O’Dwye, who will tell yo’ what she thinks of yo’ uppity ass if yo’ just ask her.

        So stop badgering creativity and while Patricia and I post sophisticated “shit and giggles” why don’t yo’ go soak yo’ criticizing cerebral ass in yo’ kiddy pool, blow some bubbles , sniff a few funny bubbiles and crack a smile or two it wood done yo’ juvenile jealous little ass lotsa’ good.

          1. Prince Criticizing: Would you please stop sniffing those funny sounding underwater farts as they ffect yo’ reasonin’ like cusin’ me of ‘” gettin’ chicks at gunshows and lynchings”

            Yet yo be’ da’ cracker racist advancing the defense for the Marigny shooter as defending his” fortress” and I’m sayin’ he and you bees dead wrong as yo’ yard ain’t yo’ crib bro’ . Cept in yo case’ being a little criticizin”juvenile it could bees yo’ crib alright.

          2. I know you’re obsessed with me, but I really don’t understand your gibberish. Every time you post a comment, which is nauseatingly often, you think about me. Your fragile cage is clearly rattled. You REALLY do need some help.

      2. Prince Criticizing: Oh you’re reading my posts loud and clear alright and I’m going to keep on yo’ criticizing ass until yo’ tired reading what yo’ really are:
        ,
        A liberal ,non-debating idiot who only wants to debase other commenters because yo’ either don’t know the facts or don’t care to be told the facts.

        If you’re reading SlabbedNation to debase other commenters yo’ ass needs to tune in NOLA.com they love that juvenile behavior.

        1. I don’t read anything called SlabbedNation. And I rarely “debase other commenters.” You are a grade A douche-nozzle, and you call me out on posts I have not even commented on; so I feel compelled to debase you because it’s so easy. Think of me at the next Teabag rally, Klan meeting, or whatever you are calling it these days. And please throw that sticky photo of Sean Hannity away; you’ve used it enough times.

          1. Prince Criticizing: THIS IS THE SLABBEDNATION YOU ARE READING ASS!!!

            Please get treated for Alzheimer’s before you end up as a missing person though that might be the best destiny for yo’ .

    3. The 92 Suburban is to be outfitted with electronic equipment which sounded akin to a “smart pig” to determine clogged drainage basins etc.

      1. ” … outfitted with electronic equipment……..” HHmmmmm, yo’ mean like wit’ huge, Huey Long loudspeakers broadcasting, ” JP needs nother Yenni to bees da’ President in da’ big Yenni House”.

        Kenna’ voters need to tell Yenni to sell dat clunker before it causes a national gas shortage and price increase.
