DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) -
Roads, sewage and business development were among several hot topics in a political roundtable Tuesday night in Livingston Parish. More than a dozen candidates running for office gave their take on the issues.
CHIPS, also known as Citizens for Highways and Infrastructure, hosted the forum to give the candidates the chance to talk about how they would serve the people of Livingston Parish the next four years.
A lot of them talked about the obvious, roads, their take on a proposed loop in the parish, infrastructure and even animal control.
9 News talked to one man who said he was there to encourage the candidates, if elected, to consider giving up parish-paid health and dental insurance.
"These are people who are not parish employees, they are elected officials," said Bob Morgan. "Some of them have their own insurance and that's fine. But this is a big expense and it's a volunteer job."
Morgan says he'd like to see that money go back into the general fund, where residents could see their dollars go to work in the parish.
