BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The drama that seemed to never end for Port Allen may never repeat itself again thanks to a bill that passed Tuesday.
Sen. Rick Ward of Port Allen introduced a bill which says a recalled elected official cannot run for the same position in a special election.
This bill was created in response to former Port Allen Mayor Deedy Slaughter who was recalled in November, then ran again for the mayor's office in a special election in April. She had been in the office less than a year.
The bill passed in the House and Senate and now awaits the governor's signature.
