Senator supports president’s shutdown strategy

With the partial shutdown of the federal government now entering its third week, U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy said in an interview that he’s following the lead of President Donald Trump.
“The issue is do we secure our southern border or not,” Cassidy told LaPolitics. “The president, and I agree with him, feels as if that is what is necessary to keep Americans safer and more secure.”
Louisiana’s senior senator said any resolution to end the shutdown would have to emerge from the lower chamber of Congress, which Democrats seized control of this term.

Vermilion Parish School Board locked at 4-4 vote for new president

In the first Vermilion Parish School Board meeting of 2019 with three new school board members, a familiar result occurred.
The new school board members could not decide on whom they wanted to be president. After three votes, the result came up 4-4.
Board members Jean Broussard and Kibbie Pillette put their names up to be the new president.
Last year’s vice president Laura LeBeouf did not want the job.
When it came to voting for Broussard, Chris Gautreaux, Jean Broussard, and Jason Roy voted for Jean.
