Paul Marionneaux is 47 years old. He is also a life-long resident of Brusly and has worked in law enforcement for 30 years. He is currently the interim assistant police chief for Brusly.

"I felt like now was the time," said Paul Marionneaux. "I think I have a lot to offer, I think I'm qualified for the job and I look forward to serving the people of Brusly."

"I plan to be 100 percent dedicated to the police department and the town," said Jonathan Lefeaux. "I want to be able to work with the business owners here, the youth and the elderly."
