Lepine and Turner meet in second debate

By Jason Browne

The candidates for Plaquemines Parish President met again to debate on Oct. 17, this time without the Plaquemines Parish president.

President Amos Cormier III had a prior engagement and was unable to attend the Plaquemines Association of Business & Industry’s Candidates’ Forum at Belle Chasse High School.
