Mayor Holden misses Metro Council meeting because of trip to Taiwan

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Plenty of people questioned why the mayor skipped an important and special East Baton Rouge Metro Council meeting about flood recovery.

9News made a special request and got a copy of the mayor's schedule for the weeks of Monday, Sept. 5 and Monday, Sept. 12.

Mayor Kip Holden is currently in Taiwan on what is described as a business trip. He will return to Baton Rouge for the weekend before leaving on another trip to Baltimore on Wednesday, Sept. 8.
