Mike Yenni, the beleagured but successful President of Jefferson Parish has made his future decision. He will not run for re-election.
Yenni, the former Mayor of the City of Kenner, was voted parish president in 2015. Shortly afterwards, he became embroiled in a personal controversy. The two candidates who seek to replace him are Councilwoman Cynthia Lee Sheng and former Jefferson Parish President John Young. Here is the just-released press statement from his media advisor Greg Buisson:
Spring is in the air. Flowers are blooming, birds are singing and the kickoff of the Politics with a Punch season is about to begin. So is our Louisiana statewide elections season.
Politics with a Punch is the very popular political-comedy impromptu event held at the Eiffel Society at 2040 St. Charles Avenue. The next date is Thursday March 28, 2019.
