Councilman Jared Brossett, who has served the citizens of New Orleans for over 10 years as a state legislator and District D City Councilmember, will qualify for Clerk of Civil Court on Wednesday, July 18, 8:30 a.m. at the Clerk of Court’s Office, 2700 Tulane Ave. in New Orleans.
“Since the 2005 storms and levee failure in Orleans Parish, we have all become keenly aware of how vital and important this office is as the record-keeper for our most personal documents,” said Councilman Brossett. “That’s why it is important to elect someone who understands state and local government, who has a record of serving and helping people, and who is committed to efficiency and responsiveness.”
Councilman Brossett already has the endorsement of the following elected officials in seeking the office, which will have its first open-seat election in nearly 30 years: Councilmembers Helena Moreno, Jason Williams Joseph Giarrusso, Kristin G. Palmer; Legislators Gary Carter, Royce Duplessis, Jimmy Harris, Ted James, Walt Leger, J.P. Morrell; Sheriff Marlin Gusman; Assessor Erroll Williams and many others, such as former U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu and former Council President Arnie Fielkow.
“People ask me, ‘Jared, why are you running for clerk of court?’ and I tell them I’m in this business of government because I love making things happen and getting things done for people. But right now in the clerk’s office, things are not happening efficiently enough and I will encourage innovation and improve technology, promote customer service and self-empowerment, stress employee development and create a workplace atmosphere of respect, dignity and caring.”
