Molbert announces he won’t seek re-election
It’s official; Paul Molbert, in his third term as the City of Rayne’s alderman-at-large and mayor pro tem, announces he will not seek re-election in the fall citywide election slated for November 5, 2014.
Molbert states, “It has been an absolute pleasure being a public servant for the citizens of Rayne over the past 11 years and I look forward to serving out the final year of my term in office. I have always thought and prayed that I would make the right decisions on behalf of all the citizens of Rayne and leave the city in a better condition than it was when I took office in 2003.” Of course, none of this good work would have been possible without having a set of common goals and a great working relationship with my fellow colleagues on the city council. Cooperation from the City of Rayne administration, parish, state and federal officials has been beneficial in accomplishing much to enrich the lives of our citizens.”
Molbert notes his role as vice president of network development at Lafayette General Health has increased significantly over the past few years which has made it more difficult to balance family time, work and public service. “The good news is that there are others who are qualified to seek this office and continue on our progressive path. I want to thank my wife Michelle and our children for allowing me to serve the people of Rayne as without their support, it would have been impossible. Last but certainly not least, I want to thank the citizens of Rayne for bestowing on me the honor and privilege of electing me to serve you. The City of Rayne has a bright and promising future and I look forward to providing support to those entrusted in leading “our” city once my term concludes at the end of 2014.”
