As was announced by Alderwoman Ezora Proctor during last week’s Crowley City Council meeting, a candidate forum for those vying for the Crowley Chief of Police seat will be held at the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreational Center on Tuesday, Feb, 23, at 6:30 p.m.
The event is open to the public.
The election became necessary when current Chief K.P. Gibson was elected to the office of Acadia Parish Sheriff in October. He will take office as the parish’s top lawman on July 1.
Gibson has served as Crowley’s chief since 2002. A special election will be held on Saturday, March 5, to elect his replacement.
The candidates for the office (listed alphabetically) are Oliver Bernard, Jimmy Broussard, Scott Fogleman and Berton Gauthreaux.
According to Proctor, all four of the candidates have committed to attend Tuesday night’s forum.
“They sounded excited about the opportunity to address our citizens,” she said. “And I know I’m looking forward to hearing their stances.”
For more information contact Proctor at (337) 783-8094, Alderman Vernon “Step” Martin or any other member of the West Crowley Advisory Committee.
