Dear Neighbors of District 4,

Last fall, I knocked on hundreds of doors in my quest to meet the residents and understand the needs of Parish Council District 4. Gratefully, I earned your support and was installed to serve as your parish councilman in January of this year. Thank you for bestowing your confidence in me, I eagerly look forward to serving you for the next four years.

In keeping with my campaign promise to listen and be sensitive to the needs of District 4 residents, I have published the first of many newsletters to keep you informed of the progress in our district. These newsletters will be published on my website, posted from my Facebook page and emailed to those who have signed up to receive it. They will also be archived on this website for easy reference.

Please remember that you can reach me anytime. I am always available to answer your questions, listen to your comments and concerns or simply to get to know you better.

Please have a safe and enjoyable summer.

Mike Lorino
