Tangipahoa Parish President Candidate Notariano Touts Term Limits Initiative

AMITE, LA – Tangipahoa Parish President candidate Carlos Notariano said the Parish Council's decision to place term limits on the October ballot is a victory for voters and for good government. 

         The Tangipahoa Parish Council agreed, by way of a 7-2 vote Tuesday, to give voters the opportunity to decide in the Oct. 24 election whether to limit the parish president and council members to three consecutive four-year terms.

         According to The Advocate’s Vic Couvillion, voting in favor were Councilmen David Vial, Carlo Bruno, Trent Forrest, Greg Varnado, Ronnie Bankston, Harry Lavine and Nicky Muscarello. Voting no were Councilmen Louis Joseph and Lionel Wells. Council member Bobby Cortez abstained.

         Notariano, who served on the Council from District 8 from 1999-2011, has long advocated for term limits. Now, running for Tangipahoa Parish President, Notariano commended the Council on its vote on the measure.

         "The purpose of public service is not to create dynasties or build a career on taxpayer dollars," Notariano said. "I limited myself to three terms on the Parish Council, and if the voters honor me with the office of Parish President, I will not make it a career. Making the lives of Tangipahoa residents better is not as much a job as a calling, and it certainly shouldn't be a career.

         "We have a vibrant and diverse economy, and it can be better," he said.  "We have a safe parish, but it can be better. I will always be accessible to the people of our communities and I will never put my own political interests above service to the public."
