Post Date:February 23, 2017 3:03 p.m.

Hahnville, LA - Councilwoman Julia Fisher-Perrier was elected as an At-Large Executive Board member of the Policy Jury Association of Louisiana at their annual convention on February 17.

"Throughout the past year I have been campaigning for this seat state wide by attending region meetings and getting to know all 64 parishes in the state. At the convention, the group worked hard on the campaign and showed that St. Charles Parish is a powerful force when we work together,” Fisher-Perrier said. “This seat on the executive board will benefit St. Charles Parish by giving us a permanent seat at the table on state issues and strengthen our voice as a parish.”

Fisher-Perrier won the election in the first round with 38 of the 50 parishes voting for her.

The At-Large member must run for re-election annually as long the candidate remains elected on the local level. Fisher-Perrier serves as the District IIV Councilwoman for St. Charles Parish.

The Police Jury Association Executive Board meets four times during a calendar year and is composed of a President, First Vice President, Second Vice President, Third Vice President, all Past Presidents, the Presidents of the recognized affiliate organizations, and a Board Member elected from each of the eight geographic regions of the State.

The association was created in 1924 to improve parish government in the State of Louisiana. Membership is open to each of the 64 parishes in the State of Louisiana, whether organized as a Police Jury, Parish Council or Parish Commission.
