“Freedom is a rare and delicate plant. Our minds tell us, and history confirms, that the great threat to freedom is the concentration of power.” -Milton Friedman.

Well it’s nice to know that our councilmen read this Call & Comment section. Because after writing in a few weeks ago, the trucks have been by to pick up a lot of the piles that were left. So, thanks for that but we, as the voters, should not have to tell you, the elected, what needs to be done in a disaster such as this. Those piles of debris were left for nearly 4 months. There’s no sense in that. I must say, there was one person that has fought for all of Livingston Parish , and that is Garrett Graves. I never met the man, but his dedication to the people of our parish gave him the easy 60%+ win for a second term. Councilmen and Mr. President take a lesson!

When will the trash on the side of the street left from the flood be picked up? It makes us feel more depressed than what we already are.
