LAFOURCHE APPOINTS INTERIM COUNCIL MEMBER

Nicholls State University Police Chief Craig Jaccuzzo was named the new Councilman for Lafourche Parish’s 5th District after a unanimous vote at a council meeting.

Jaccuzzo will replace James Bourgeois, who was convicted of a felony charge of filing a false public record. Bourgeois also has been in violation of protective orders and charged with contempt of court for neglecting to obey a restraining order filed against him by Councilman Jerry LaFont.

Jaccuzzo is an interim councilman in the District 5 seat. He said upon his appointment that he has no intentions of holding the seat on a full-time basis.

Bourgeois’ term lasts through 2019. Barring his conviction being thrown out, the position will belong to Jaccuzzo until the next election cycle for that seat.
