Ellis To Seek Reelection To Mandeville Council

MANDEVILLE, LA – Mandeville City Councilman David Ellis will seek reelection in March to the District I City Council seat he has held since 2012.

         Ellis, a Republican, won the vacant seat 53-47 in March 2012 and took office in July of that year.  District I includes western Mandeville and portions of the City's busy business district surrounding the intersection of N. Causeway Blvd., Hwy. 190 and Hwy. 22. 

         In his first term, Ellis has been an advocate for openness and transparency, and authored the 2014 ordinance that requires bidders for City contracts to disclose financial relationships with City officials. Early in his term he authored the law regulating bow-and-arrow use in City Limits after a dangerous incident in his district. He has worked for infrastructure improvements in District I, including the new bicycle path on West Causeway Approach and improvements to that thoroughfare.

         Ellis has also been a champion of fiscal restraint, opposing proposals that would have increased Mandeville's liabilities and advocating for smart growth and responsible annexation.

         A financial adviser by profession, Ellis has been an active participant in the Mandeville Financial Oversight Committee, which was created by the Council in 2012 to enhance citizen input into the City's fiscal affairs and budget process.

         "I'm proud of the work I've done in the last three years, and of my ability to work with my colleagues on the Council and with the Administration," Ellis said. "I've hosted several town hall meetings in our district to hear citizen input, and have been accessible to my constituents via email, telephone and Facebook. A big part of my responsibility as Councilman is to keep the citizens informed and to hear their concerns whenever they have them, not just at twice-monthly meetings. I hope they will honor me with a second term."

         Ellis, 41, and his wife, Susan, a teacher, have two children. They live in the Fontainebleau subdivision and attend Church of the King.
