QUESTION. YES. ALL RIGHT. HERE’S
ANOTHER ONE. MR. YONG. WE’RE
GOING TO START WITH YOU. YOU
HAVE 60 SECONDS OR ONE MINUTE TO
ANSWER THIS QUESTION IF ELECTED. WHAT’S YOUR PLAN ON IMPROVING
QUALITY OF LIFE WITH THE PARISH
LANDFILL? IT AFFECTS THE WEST
BANK AND THE SMELL ISSUE ON THE
EAST BANK IS ALSO A BIG PROBLEM
IN 60 SECONDS. WHAT IS YOUR PLAN FOR THE LANDFILL IF YOU’RE
ELECTED? WELL, FIRST OF ALL, I’D
LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT WHILE I
WAS PARISH PRESIDENT BEFORE WE
DIDN’T HAVE THE SAM ISSUES WITH
THE LANDFILL ONE OF THE DISTINGUISHING. FAT WE NEVER
ACCEPTED IN TERMS OF WHAT WE’RE
GOING TO DO AT THE LANDFILL TO
IMPROVE IT AND MAKE SURE WE
SOLVE THOSE PROBLEMS. WE’RE
GOING TO I’M GONNA POINT AT ENVIRONMENTAL MONITOR WE’RE
GOING TO PURCHASE ARE MONITORS
THROUGHOUT THE LANDFILL AND
THROUGHOUT THE PARISH ALONG THE
RIVER AS WELL AND WE’RE GOING TO
MAKE SURE WE GOT GOING TO CALL FOR LEGISLATIVE AUDIT WHEN I
TAKE OFFICE TO SEE THAT THE
MONEY THAT’S ALREADY BEEN SPENT
HAS BEEN SPENT PROPERLY AND
WE’RE GOING TO MANAGE THAT
LANDFILL ON A DAILY BASIS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE PROTECT
PROTECT THE QUALITY OF AIR FOR
THE CITIZENS OF IF ELECTED, WHAT
IS YOUR PLAN FOR THE LANDFILL
THAT’S AFFECTING SO MANY PEOPLE
ON BOTH SIDES OF THE RIVER STYX TIMES. ALSO, I’M WOULD HIRE A
COMPANY WITH DRONES TO TRACK THE
SMELL BECAUSE AS FAR AS I KNOW
NOBODY KNOWS WHERE THE SMELL OF
PETROL CHEMICAL SMELLS THERE’S
STUFF GOING ON THE RIVER. I HAVE NO IDEA IF IT’S THE LANDFILL I
WANT TO PINPOINT WHERE THE SMELL
IS COMING FROM AND PEOPLE SHOULD
NOT IN JEFFERSON PARISH SHOULD
NOT HAVE TO BREATHE. YEARS
BEFORE POLITICIANS DO ANYTHING. ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU MR. BOND
ACRONIS LI SHANG SAME QUESTION. IF ELECTED. WHAT IS YOUR PLAN IN
60 SECONDS FOR THE ISSUES WITH
THE LANDFILL? WELL, I WOULD HAVE
TO DISRESPECTFULLY DISAGREE WITH
MR. YOUNG AND THAT HE DID NOT
HAVE PROBLEMS DURING HIS TENURE. WE HAVE BEEN KNEE-DEEP IN THE
LANDFILL TRYING TO CHASE THESE
ODORS THE FIRST TIME THIS
COUNCIL WAS INFORMED OF THE
ISSUES AND THE PROBLEM WITH THE
LANDFILL WAS LAST SUMMER AND SINCE THAT TIME WE HAVE HAD TOO
MANY OF US HAVE VISITED THE
LANDFILL MANY TIMES. I’VE HAD TO
PUT ALMOST 12 MILLIO LOWER
BACK IS DECEMBER 13 AND THE
QUESTION THAT WE ALL HAVE IS WHY WASN’T ANYTHING DONE AT THAT
TIME AND WE’VE LET THE LEACHATE
BUILD UP AND NOW THIS
ADMINISTRATION IN THIS COUNCIL
IS STUCK WITH GOING BACK AND
TRYING TO REMOVE THE WATER FROM THE LANDFILL AND TRY TO LOOK AT
MOVING MOVING. THE GAS IS
BECAUSE IT’S THE GASES ON THE
LANDFILL THAT HAS BEEN CAUSING
THE ODORS AS FAR BACK AS RIVER
RIDGE AND HARAHAN REALLY COOL GUY. OKAY, I RESPECTFULLY
DISAGREE WITH HER HAND UNTIL 17
AFTER. WAS HAVE A PROBLEM WITH
COVER BUT NOTHING TO THE EXTENT
THAT’S HAPPENING NOW AND THIS
COUNCIL IN THIS ADMINISTRATION ACCEPTED LIQUID INDUSTRIAL
WASTE, WHICH I ADMINISTRATION
DID NOT REALLY QUICKLY. IS THAT
IS THAT ACCURATE? DID YOU ALL
ACCEPT LOOK FOR WHEN WHEN ONE
CONTRACTOR TOOK OVER FROM ANOTHER CONTRACTOR? HIS
ADMINISTRATION WAS NOTIFIED THAT
THE LANDFILL WAS ESSENTIALLY NOT
WORKING AND WE CAN’T FIND
ANYTHING THAT HAPPENED SINCE
THAT TIME. SO SINCE 2013 WHEN WE MAY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ADDRESS
THE PROBLEM BACK THEN WE HAD TO
WAIT UNTIL T RESIDENTS
ACTUALLY SMELLED THE GAS COMING
OFF. IT WAS NEVER ACCEPTED
BEFORE WE COULD ALL AGREE. IT’S A BIG ISSUE THAT EVERYBODY HAS
TO ADDRESS WE COULD TALK ABOUT
THAT THE ENTIRE 20 MINUTES. UNFORTUNATELY, WE DO HAVE TO GET
TO THEIR TOPICS HERE. MR. BONNER
CAREER THIS QUESTION. WE’LL
START WITH YOU 30 SECONDS HERE A
QUICK ONE THE AREA KNOWN AS FAT
CITY IS MAKING A COMEBACK RIGHT NOW IN 30 SECONDS IF ELECTED. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU DO
TO CONTINUED PROGRESS IN THAT
FAT CITY AREA OF METAIRIE. I’M
GOING TO HAVE TO LOOK AT WHAT’S
MAKING A BUNCH OF BUSINESSES
WOULD SHUT DO AND ALSO I DON’T AGREE ON HAVING A HUNDRED FIFTY
THOUSAND DOLLARS OF OUR TAX
MONEY TO DECORATE THE FRONT OF
THEIR BUILDING. I WOULD STOP
THAT. ALL RIGHT MISS LI SHANG
SAME QUESTION IF ELECTED IN 30 SECONDS, WHAT’S THE FIRST THING
YOU DO TO HELP FAT CITY, WHICH
HAS SEEN A RESURGENCE IN RECENT
YEARS. I’M GLAD THE QUESTION
CAME UP. THE REASON FAT CITIES
HAVE STATE HAS SEEN A RESURGENCE IS BECAUSE I TOOK THIS ISSUE
HEAD-ON ALMOST 10 YEARS AGO AND
IT IS A DIFFERENT NEIGHBORHOOD
TODAY THAT THE THINGS THAT WE
DID BACK THEN WHICH WERE VERY
HARD AND PEOPLE CALLED F MY RECALL ON IT. WHAT LOOKING AT
9:00. AS LANDED THEIR DINING
ROOM WE HAVE THE NEW JEWELRY
STORE OPENING WE HAVE SHAKE
SHACK THERE SO THAT AREA IS JUST
PRIME AND IT’S DOING VERY WELL. WE DO NEED TO HANDLE THE PARKING
ISSUES AND WE DO NEED TO HANDLE
THE TRAFFIC THE TRAFFIC ISSUES
AND COUNCILMAN. DAN RANKIN HAS
BEEN A GOOD PROPONENT OF THAT
AND MR. YOUNG SAME QUESTION IF ELECTED IN 30 SECONDS, WHAT IS
YOUR PLAN TO HELP THE RESURGENCE
WITH FATS? FIRST OF ALL FAT CITY
HAS BEEN CLEANED UP BUT IT
CERTAINLY HAS NOT REACHED ITS
PEAK. IT’S STILL UNDER UTILIZED. WE NEED TO I WOULD LIKE TO SEE
US CREATE DISTRICT SIMILAR TO
FRENCHMAN. LIVE JAZZ TYPE OF
MUSIC AND REGULATE IT SO THAT
YOU WOULD BRING IN MORE
RESTAURANTS MORE PEOPLE FAT CITY IS UNDERUTILIZED. IT’S DEAD AT
NIGHT WITH THE EXCEPTION OF
DRAGO’S AND THE EXCEPTION OF
THOSE JEFES. ALRIGHT, WE’RE
GOING TO START THIS QUESTION
WITH YOU MISS LI SHANG. ONCE AGAIN, WE’RE GOING TO KEEP IT TO
30 SECONDS BECAUSE WE WANT TO
GET AS MUCH INFORMATION HERE AS
POSSIBLE TWO OF YOU ALL ARE
SEASONED PROS RUNNING CAMPAIGNS
RIGHT NOW. YOU’VE RUN FOR OFFICE BEFORE WITH ALL ALL DUE RESPECT
TO MR. BOND OCCUR ARE IN THIRD. SOME ACCUSING HIM OF EMPLOYING A
MAN ACCUSED OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT
AND JUMPING JOB TO JOB. CAN YOU
DEFEND THAT ADD IN 30 SECONDS? ABSOLUTELY, YOU KNOW, MR. JUNG
DID NOT MANAGE THE SITUATION. WELL, THERE WAS A WOMAN WHO
COMPLAINED OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT. HE TOOK NINE MONTHS TO
INVESTIGATE THAT CLAIM AND LATER
AFTER THAT WAS INVESTIGATED THE
WOMAN WAS DEMOTED AND THEN SHE
WAS FIRED AND THE PARISH HAD TO
PAY HUNDRED THOUSAND ALMOST $200,000 TO SET DEFEND THAT. ALL
RIGHT, LET’S KEEP TALKING ABOUT
ADS AND 30 SECONDS. MR. YOUNG. CAN YOU LI SHANG SAYING THAT SHE
DOESN’T HAVE HER FACTS STRAIGHT
AND QUESTIONING HER ABILITY TO
LEAD IN 30 SECONDS. CAN YOU
DEFEND THAT? ABSOLUTELY. SHE
DOESN’T HAVE A FACTS STRAIGHT. SHE CONTINUES TO DISTORT THE
FACTS THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS
WHEN IT CAME TO MY ATTENTION. WE
ORDERED AN INVESTIGATION AN
INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION WHEN
THAT INVESTIGATION WAS COMPLETE THE EMPLOYEE AND IT’S NOT ME
THEY TRY TO INSINUATES ME. THE
EMPLOYEE WAS IMMEDIATELY
RESIGNED. WE ARE SUPERVISED OVER
3,000 EMPLOYEES THEY HAVE ISSUES
RIGHT NOW IN JEFFERSON PARISH THAT THEY’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT
WITH SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND
TRYING TO COVER UP. SO FOR HER
TO SAY THAT AS SHE’S BEING
DISINGENUOUS REALLY QUICKLY. IS
THAT IS THAT ACCURATE IF YOU LOOK AT HOW THE MONEY FLOWED THE
PARISH HAD TO PAY TWO HUNDRED
THOUSAND DOLLARS TO SETTLE THE
RETALIATION CLAIM SEXUAL
HARASSMENT CASE WAS DISMISSED
WITH PREJUDICE BY A FEDERAL JUDGE THE COUNCIL APPROVED WITH
THE RECOMMENDATION, SI ABILITY
IS TYPICAL, MR. YOUNG. OKAY. ONCE AGAIN, WE NEED TO MOVE ON
MR. BOND OCCUR. ARE YOU ARE NOT
RUNNING ANY ADS ATTACKING EITHER
OF THESE TWO, SO WE’RE GOING TO
ASK YOU A QUESTION ABOUT THIS. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS IN 30
SECONDS ON ATTACK ADS AND
POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS. I THINK
THAT PERFECTLY FINE AS LONG AS
THEY NOT AIMED AT ME I CAN HAVE
AS MANY ADS AS THEY WANT IN BETWEEN THEM. ITS ENGINE ENJOY
THEM. THAT’S THAT’S A VERY GOOD
ANSWER. ALRIGHT, WE’RE GOING TO
START THIS QUESTION WITH YOU. MR. YOUNG IT DEALS WITH ECONOMY
BIG TOPIC IN JEFFERSON PARISH. WE’RE LIKE THIS PARISH
PRESIDENT. WHAT’S THE FIRST
THING YOU DO TO ATTRACT MORE
CORPORATE BUSINESS JEFFERSON. JUST WHAT I DID THE LAST TIME I
WAS PAST PRESENT. I KEPT
PEOPLE’S HEALTH AND JEFFERSON
PARISH BY WORKING AT THEM AND
JACK GO TO DO AND SOME TAX
INCENTIVES. I ACTUALLY WAS THE ONE WHO HELPED BRING SMOOTHIE
KING THE JEFFERSON PARISH WITH
GINO LINK AND JET GO ABROAD STAR
SERVICES I GO AND MEET WITH THEM
AND WE PUT OUR PUBLIC WORKS
TOGETHER. WE DO WHAT WE NEED AND WE CUT THROUGH THE REGULATORY
PROCESS SO WE C MAKE
BUSINESSES FEEL WELCOME IN
JEFFERSON PARISH. WE CAN PROVIDE
ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES AND
QUALITY JOBS TO OUR CITIZENS. HI. MR. BONNER CARE IF ELECTED
AT 30 SECONDS, WHAT IS YOUR PLAN
TO BRING GOOD CORPORATE JOBS TO
JEFFERSON PARISH. I’M WANT TO
CONCENTRATE ON PEOPLE. I LIKE
BUSINESS TO BE HERE. I DON’T WANT TO GIVE ANY HANDOUTS AS FAR
AS TAX BREAKS IF WE HAVE A LOT
OF PEOPLE HERE PEOPLE ARE
FLEEING. I DON’T KNOW WHY THE
CONCENTRATING ON GETTING
BUSINESSES HERE WHEN THE PEOPLE ARE LEAVING THE NORTH SHORE
BECAUSE OF THE POLLUTION AND THE
CORRUPTION AND QUESTION IN 30
SECONDS IF ELECTED. WHAT IS YOUR
PLAN TO ATTRACT MORE CORPORATE
JOBS TO JEFFERSON PARISH. I THINK IT HAS TO DO WITH
REGIONALISM AND I THINK
JEFFERSON PARISH STANDING ON ITS
OWN IN ORLEANS PARISH IN THE
SURROUNDING PARISHES STANDING ON
THEIR OWN IS NO LONGER A PARADIGM THAT WORKS. WELL FOR US
THE STATISTIC, I LIKE TO USE IS
IF YOU ADD JEFFERSON PARISH IN
ORLEANS PARISH, WE STILL DON’T
EQUAL LOUISVILLE. WE STILL DON’T
EQUAL IN NASHVILLE, AND WE STILL DON’T EQUAL A JACKSONVILLE. SO
WE HAVE TO COME TOGETHER AS A
REGION AND SELL OURSELVES TO THE
REST OF T COUNTRY NOT A
SEPARATE PERISHES, BUT AS A
STRONG JAMES FOR JEFFERSON PARISH SHERIFF. NO, I’M
UNDECIDED ON THAT. ALL RIGHT,
MISS LI SHANG. ARE YOU
SUPPORTING ANYBODY IN THE
CURRENT RACE FOR JEFFERSON
PARISH SHERIFF? I’M SUPPORTING SHERIFF LEPANTO. I THINK HE’S
DONE AN INCREDIBLE JOB. MR. YEAGER YOU SUPPORTING ANYBODY IN
THE CAR AND RACE FOR JEFFERSON
PARISH SHERIFF. NO, I’M FOCUSED
ON THIS RACE. ALL RIGHT, LET’S
TALK CRIME. WE’RE GOING TO START
THIS AGAIN WITH YOU IN 30 SECONDS. HOW WILL YOU WORK WITH
WHOEVER IS ELECTED AS SHERIFF TO
CONTINUE TO MAKE SURE THAT
JEFFERSON PARISH REMAINS A SAFE
PERISH FOR ITS CITIZENS IN 3
SECONDS. I CAN WORK WITH ANYONE WHO SHARES I WAS ABSOLUTELY
CRUCIAL. I KNOW BOTH GENTLEMEN
IN THE RACE. I CONSIDER THEM
BOTH FRIENDS OF MINE AND THOSE
RELATIONSHIPS ARE ABSOLUTELY
CRUCIAL, BUT I I PROPOSED LEGISLATION AS A COUNCIL MEMBER
TO DIRECTLY REDUCE CRIME BECAUSE
THAT’S THE LAW ENFORCEMENT
BACKGROUND THAT I HAVE MR. YOUNG
SAME QUESTION IN 30 SECONDS IF
ELECTED. HOW WILL YOU WORK WITH EITHER PERSON ELECTED SHERIFF TO
MAKE SURE THAT JEFFERSON PARISH
REMAIN SAFE. WELL AS A FORMER
PROSECUTOR, I HAVE A LAW
ENFORCEMENT BACKGROUND AND I
WORK WITH ANY SHERIFF AND ANY OTHER ELECTED OFFICIAL TO MAKE
SURE FROM CRIME WHEN I WAS
PARISH PRESIDENT LAST WE TOOK
OUR CODE ENFORCEMENT DEPARTMENT
WORK WITH THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE
TO TAKE A NOTE BROKEN WINDOW APPROACH AND TARGETED THE 17
WORST NEIGHBORHOODS IN TERMS OF
CRIME TO ERADICATE THOSE
PROBLEMS AND I WILL CONTINUE TO
MAKE SURE AS PARISH PRESIDENT
THAT THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE IN ALL THE MUNICIPAL POLICE DEPARTMENTS
HAVE THE APPROPRIATE RESOURCES
TO PROTECT OUR FAMILIES AGAINST
CRIME. ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. MR. YOUNG. MR. BONNER CHRISTINE
QUESTION IF ELECTED, HOW WILL
YOU WORK WORK WITH EITHER THE
CURRENT SHERIFF OR A NEW SHOW? HAS OUR FULL SUPPORT MY WORK AS
A TEAM. I WILL NOT BE TARGETING
NEIGHBORHOODS. I’M GOING TO
TREAT EVERYBODY EQUALLY WITH THE
CODE DEPARTMENT EVERYBODY IF
IT’S A PROBLEM IF THERE’S HIGH CRIME AND EVERYBODY SHOULD BE
TREATED THE SAME AND I WON’T
HAVE AN AGGRESSIVE CODE
DEPARTMENT EITHER. ALL RIGHT, WE

HOUSE RIGHT NOW THE MOST
PRESSING ISSUE FACING JARS
PARISH IS GETTING OUR CAPITAL
OUTLAY MONEY TO DO CONTINUE TO
DO MAJOR FLOOD CONTROL PROJECTS INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS, BUT
ACTUALLY THE MOST PRESSING ONE
RIGHT NOW IS THE AIRPORT INGRESS

MAJOR PROBLEM FOR JEFFERSON

QUESTION. WHAT’S THE BIGGEST
ISSUE FACING JEFFERSON PARISH AT
THE STATE HOUSE? I WOULD WOULD
