Port Allen residents made it clear Saturday – they had grown tired of mayor Demetric “Deedy” Slaughter and her ways.
During a press conference Wednesday afternoon, which was set up by civil rights leader, Rev. Raymond Brown and a group of supporters of P.A. Mayor Demetric “Deedy” Slaughter, the group’s call to reject the mayoral recall in Saturday’s election turned to hostility and finger-pointing toward the media for the way the public views Slaughter.
West Baton Rouge Registrar of Voters, Stacy Ryan, said Tuesday morning that she is expecting 75-80% voter turnout in Saturday’s Port Allen mayoral recall election.
A Port Allen man is in critical condition after being shot Monday, November 11, and Port Allen Police have narrowed the shooter to one man.
Since Saturday, Nov. 2, at 8:30 a.m. until about 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 5, about 24 percent of voters within the city limits of Port Allen turned out for the early voting for or against the recall of Port Allen Mayor Demetric “Deedy” Slaughter.
