Mayor Roy Shirks Responsibility Again

Alexandria has had a crisis of leadership for some time. The current leadership void is represented by Jacques Maurice Roy. Take note of this quote from today's Town Talk article, "Central Louisiana turns to Alexander, Landrieu and Vitter to fix levees":

"I do believe still and maintain strongly that the solution is going to occur on the congressional level," Roy said.

I'll bet he does. Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow, right? Well, folks, we can keep waiting for the federal government to help us, like the people did in New Orleans, or we can try taking care of ourselves. It's a novel idea these days, but it works better than the alternative. Just ask the people in New Orleans.
