Statement by the Mayor-President on the Death of Councilman Amoroso

BATON ROUGE, LA — June 30, 2018 — It is with deep sadness that I inform our parish of the tragic death of Councilman Buddy Amoroso. Buddy was a colleague and a friend, and a true example of a dedicated public servant.

This tragic loss will be felt throughout the parish, from the constituents he served in District 8, to his faith community and the many organizations he served.

Please join me in keeping Councilman Amoroso's family, especially his wife Denise, his children Elaine, Michal Ann, and Joey, and his many friends lifted in prayer. We should all reflect on Councilman Amoroso’s commitment to community and kindness during this extremely difficult time.

In honor of Councilman Amoroso, I have ordered flags at all public buildings throughout the parish to be flown at half staff for the coming week.
