INTRODUCING........

 

 I will post  introductions to candidates who are running for the local offices upon submission. At this time the introduction is for a candidate running for the local Justice of the Peace seat. Any candidate is welcome to send in an " introduction" along with why you feel "you" are qualified for our vote by sending your introduction to comments@watsonla.com.

 

Today's introduction:

 

Ms. DeVonna Ponthieu is running for for Justice of the Peace against Bob Seale and Jeff Sacshe

 

She is a graduate of SLU with a bachelors in Liberal Arts and a graduate of LSU Paul M. Hebert Law School in 2001. She is a practicing attorney. Ms. Ponthieu is widow with 2 boys, both of whom are boy scouts with Troop 58 (Live Oak Methodist Church). She is a Republican and attends Walker Baptist Church.

 

As a graduate of law school and a practicing lawyer for more than 10 years, she feels like she is the most qualified to fill the seat of Justice of the Peace. As a member of the LA State Bar Association, an added benefit she will have in serving as Justice of the Peace is the ability to have access to Fastcase to do any research that needs to be done on cases.

Pelican State Credit Union’s 11th Annual FREE Kids Bike Race.

Eight-year-old Drew Sarhan recently learned to ride a bike and was excited to show off his skills on Saturday, July 26, at Pelican State Credit Union’s 11th Annual FREE Kids Bike Race.

 

“I had a blast and made lots of new friends,” said Sarhan. Sarhan and 91 other kids participated in three highly anticipated races divided by age group: 5 and under, 6 – 9 and 10 – 12. After each race, a lucky winner was drawn to win a new bicycle from Capitol Cyclery. Mikenzee Washington, Kohl Martin and Emma Elsea each held a winning raffle ticket in their respective age group.
