PLEASE, NO: Deedy Slaughter Is Making A Comeback

The Advocate has the story of the bad penny in Port Allen which won’t go away. Get ready for a lot more acquisitions.

Former mayor Demetric “Deedy” Slaughter has decided to seek re-elected to the office she was ousted from in a recall election.

Slaughter qualified to run around 2 p.m. Friday for the special mayoral election set for April 5.

Since vacating office after she was ousted in the Nov. 16 recall election, Slaughter has been tight-lipped about whether she would seek the position again.

Qualifying for the elections ends at 4:30 p.m. today. Other candidates for the position are retired law enforcement officer Richard Lee, retired teacher Kirby Anderson and Leon Goudeau.

Slaughter’s recall came after 11 months of battles with a majority of the Port Allen City Council and members of her administration resulting in a multitude of lawsuits against the ex-mayor.

We have more on this, in case you’re not in the know about the Deedy Slaughter mess, in the archives.
