Gonzales Mayor Pro Tem Kenny Matassa says he plans to run for Ascension Parish president

GONZALES, LA (WAFB) - Gonzales Mayor Pro Tem Kenny Matassa confirmed Monday that he plans to announce his run for Ascension Parish president on Wednesday.

He said the announcement will be made at 6 p.m. at Snows.

"I'm running because I think I can do good job for Ascension Parish," Matassa said. "I think I have the experience. I've always been a public servant not a politician, I feel, and that's what it takes to be successful."

Matassa has served on the Gonzales City Council for 18 years.
