Mayor Broome's Open Letter to St. George Representatives

October 15, 2019 — Last Saturday’s election was a defining moment for our city and parish. As the Mayor-President of Baton Rouge and of all the residents in East Baton Rouge Parish, it is my responsibility to make decisions that I believe are in the best interest of everyone. After evaluation of the referendum surrounding the incorporation of the City of St. George, I have met with senior advisors and legal counsel to discuss RS 33:4 of State Law, as we explore all options. I am determined to find a path forward that is best for ALL of the citizens of this parish and not a portion of our population.


In the meantime, I will meet with the St. George organizers as indicated in the attached letter.


My commitment to all of the citizens of East Baton Rouge Parish remains steadfast and unmovable.
