Alderman Mark Landry Named Mayor Pro Tem In Loreauville
LOREAUVILLE, La. (AP) — Loreauville Alderman Mark Landry has been named mayor pro tem in the wake of longtime mayor Al Broussard's death last weekend in a car crash.
KATC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1afTAFI ) Landry serves as one of the town's three aldermen, with Brad Clifton and Sandy Sonnier. He has served in the post since 2004.
Broussard died Friday after Louisiana State Police have said a 13-year-old in a pickup truck grabbed the wheel in a curve, causing the truck to collide with the vehicle driven by the mayor's fiancee.
The teen has been cited with obstructing the driving mechanism.
