NATCHITOCHES PARISH (KSLA) - The Mayor of a small Natchitoches parish village and the subject of multiple KSLA Investigations — Tommy Evans — has quit.
KSLA News 12 obtained Evans' resignation letter dated December 24th and received by the Secretary of State’s office yesterday.
Some residents have accused Evans, who’s been in office since 2016, of being arrogant, disrespectful and unwilling to listen to their concerns.
Because of the resignation, D.A. Harrington has postponed the next hearing until a later date.
KSLA Investigates reached out to Evans who respectfully declined to comment.
According to the Secretary of State’s office, Village of Clarence leaders have 20 days (on or before January 29, 2019) to make an appointment to fill the vacancy.
If not it will be up to the Governor John Bel Edwards.
