The mayor of Grosse Tete has been silent through all this, but he made his feelings on it clear several months ago. Now that his email address has been obtained, let's tell him what we think. Be creative.....

Mayor of Grosse Tete:

Michael Chauffe

P.O. Box 98

18125 Willow St.

Gross Tete, LA 70740

225-648-2131

quote from him: " I don't give a fuck if that tiger is here or not."

 

mchauffe@gt.brcoxmail.com



a few talking points you may want to bring up to him:

-roadside zoos are very unpopular and politically incorrect these days.
-a very small town that has to keep a tiger in a parking lot to get people to stop there is not likely to attract new businesses to the area.
-a mayor should indeed 'give a fuck' about the town he is responsible for. safety  issues, reputation, etc....
-why does he let his town fall into the corruption trap- allowing one rich guy to cause all this trouble, esp. when the keeping of this tiger has been illegal for years?
-is he in charge of his town, or is he a mere figurehead that allows the parish council to make all of the decisions about Grosse Tete?

i am glad you reposted this, however i have edited this entry on my page to remove his quote. a lawyer told me i could be sued for saying that since i can't prove it. i am sure he did say it though.
