Ronald Lavergne recently announced his election bid for the office of Rayne City Marshal (Ward 1).
His announcement reads as follows:
I am seeking election to the office of Rayne City Marshal Ward 1. I have been privileged to work with local and surrounding area officials over the last 16 years while in the field of Bail Bonds and as a Bail Enforcement Agent. Today is a turning point in my life and I would be honored to be able to serve the people of Ward 1 as City Marshal.
I am the son of the late Lebodier and Onezima Gautreaux and have one son, Jeremy Lavergne. I attended Rayne High School and have been a lifelong resident of Rayne.
I have 16 years experience in bail bonds, Bail Enforcement Agent, member of the Association of Louisiana Bail Underwriters and four years special duty under Don Breaux with the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office. I have completed training in the class of Controlled Force with all weapon controls.
I am seeking this position based on my experience within the court systems, police departments and the sheriff’s departments on a daily basis. I would work together with the Rayne Police Department and the city administration to have a fair, responsive, committed and uniformed working relationship. My time will be devoted to my job as well as to the Rayne Police Department in their time of need.
My commitment is to bridge all gaps between the local government and work together to continue to make Rayne a great place to live. I promise to you that I would be a full time City Marshal for Ward 1.
I would greatly appreciate your support on Tuesday, Nov. 4.
