Turkey Creek Voters vote to Appoint Police Chief

March 24, 2018



         In the only election held in Evangeline Parish today (Saturday) , voters in the Village of Turkey Creek overwhelmingly by 67 percent voted to make the office of Police Chief an appointive position rather than an elective one.  Evangeline Parish Clerk of Court Randy Deshotel reported to KVPI News that the vote totals were as follows: 56 voting yes for the move to the appointive and 27 votes voting no. Some 30 percent of the eligible voters took part in Saturday’s election. The police chief was due to be on the election day ballot this fall. Now the chief will be appointed by the Turkey Creek Board of Aldermen.

       The next elections are scheduled in November for congressman, school board and several municipal elections.
