Parish President Amos Cormier, Jr. and newly elected council members were sworn into office on January 5 during an inauguration ceremony held in the Buras Auditorium. The ceremony was full of new faces, both in the parish’s top spot and on the council. District 3 representative Kirk Lepine and District 8 representative Jeff Edgecombe were the only returning councilmen sworn in on Monday night. The rest of the council was filled out with former councilmen returning after several years away (District 1 representative John Bartelemy, Jr., District 4 representative Irvin Juneau and former Parish President and current District 5 representative Benny Rousselle) and political newcomers (District 2 representative W. Beau Black, District 6 representative Charlie Burt, District 7 representative Audrey Salvant and District 9 representative Nicole Smith Williams).
