As Mayor of Sulphur, I am full of excitement and expectations as we build on our many strengths as a City. 

 

The 230 City employees who work hard each day to maintain services, keep us safe, and help us move forward are an integral part of the progress that has been and will be made.  We continue to work together to identify the areas where we see improvement is needed.  Please be patient with us, as we continue to work hard and be accountable to you.

 

This is your City and your government, I will always be mindful that I represent each one of you.  I am humbled and honored for the trust that you have shown by electing me as your Mayor.  I vow to work hard to achieve the vision we all have for our City.  A link to the Vision SulphurVision Sulphur II documents, which were approved by the City Council, are available in the Related Pages section.

 

It is important to me that you have access to me and the City administration.  Your Council representatives know the needs and concerns in each of their districts and I pledge to work with each one of them to address those issues while working for the good of the City as a whole.  By working together, we can make sure that your voice is heard and that we keep you informed of efforts to address what we hear.  We continue to expand outreach efforts to inform you of activities in the City such as planning and development, water outages, safety concerns, events and more.

 

Since taking office in April, 2010, new programs and events have been implemented.  Our City-wide recycling effort is in place, with recycling receptacles located at Eastside Fire Station, Southside Fire Station and City Hall.  A "pilot" School Recycling Program was implemented in the 2012-2013 school year at LeBlanc Middle School and Frasch and Key Elementary Schools.  An agreement with Citgo has recently been signed to expand the program to all schools in Sulphur and Carlyss.  Movie in the Square, which began in May, 2012, has been a huge success.  Stars and Stripes, an annual event which was established to commemorate 9/11, is in its 4th year.  The attendance has grown each year with the event drawing spectators from Texas and Mississippi.  The City now has an annual Veteran's Day Celebration with a parade and program.  Heritage Square has expanded as a result of a Cooperative Endeavor Agreement with SPAR to provide bathroom facilities and the beautiful new addition "The Grove at Heritage Square".  The City, in partnership with area clergy, has sponsored the Religious Freedom Rally.  We are really excited about an event planned for March 12 - 15, 2014, The City's Centennial Anniversary Celebration.  All of this, as well as more to come, is planned by keeping our motto, "Faith, Family, & Community"  in mind.

 

There are many things in Sulphur that do not need changing.  I have those, who have been in office before me, to thank for our beautiful history and past growth.  I am blessed to have a good foundation on which to build.  As we move forward, I ask for your assistance and your patience.  Together we can accomplish great things.

 

I do ask that you participate in our success.  Serve on a committee, volunteer your time, contact your Council member to offer support, or let me hear from you.  We can achieve greatness as long as we all continue to work together to make Sulphur the best place for families to visit, live, and work. 

 

If you ever need to contact me, please call the Mayor's office at (337)-527-4500 or email me at mayorsoffice@sulphur.org.

 

Thank you,
